Centralia Mayor Tom Ashby Nominated For IML Position
Centralia Mayor Tom Ashby has been nominated to serve as Vice-President of the Illinois Municipal League (IML). The official voting will be at the IML this year on Sept. 22, 2018 in Chicago during the IML annual conference. The IML is the organization representing mayors and cities on issues, including legislative issues and mandates imposed on citizens; these mandates almost always come with a price tag or new fee.
Centralia City Manager Dan Ramey said, “I have no doubt Mayor Ashby will be a voice for southern Illinois, especially Centralia, in representing and vocalizing the needs and concerns of our area that are of major importance.”
