Heated Debate in Freeport

FREEPORT (WIFR) – Rarely do city government feuds escalate as quickly as one did at last night’s financial committee meeting in Freeport.

Police tell us they were called to the Stewart Center after some county board members refused to leave the main table and sit in the public seating area. Investigators tell us it got so bad, one of the men even whispered a threat to another person.

Officers are now questioning witnesses.
