Schneider and Dupee will focus on the November 2018 passage of an income tax increase and planned 2019 infrastructure improvements, relocation of the police station, and development of Union School Park.

Weber will review the school district’s strategic plan while Gable will provide a financial update.

Tickets are $10. They can be purchased at the mayor’s office on the third floor of town hall; Bremke Insurance, 104 South Main St.; Fifth Third Bank, 161 East Herrick Ave.; Main Street Wellington, 118 West Herrick Ave.; and the LCCC Wellington Center, 151 Commerce Dr.

“We’re proud to partner with the Wellington Eagles and present the second annual State of Wellington breakfast,” said

Wellington Kiwanis president Terry Mazzone. “We drew about 130 people last year and it proved to be an excellent opportunity for mayor Schneider and superintendent Weber to meet with community business leaders and residents and discuss the successes and challenges facing our village and schools.”
