BELVIDERE (WIFR) -- Another stateline city is saying goodbye to it's long time mayor.
After 16 years as the leader of the City of Murals, Fred Brereton took part in his final city council meeting Monday night. Brereton said he's most proud of maintaining fiscal stability despite heavy swings in both population growth and economic growth. Mike Chamberlain will replace Brereton as Mayor after edging out fellow Alderman Mark Sanderson by just 6 votes. Meantime, Brereton will return to work with his son in the family's insurance business.
