    The issue was brought up at the last city council meeting, where several residents voiced their opposition. In response, Alton’s Fourth Ward Alderwoman, Rosie Brown, is holding a meeting tonight at 6 p.m. at the Salvation Army on Alby Street.

    A zoning application is expected to be submitted to Alton leaders by May 1, 2024.
