I want to make a FOIA Request


A petition has been filed with the City Clerk to put the following question on the November 6, 2018 ballot:

“Shall the City of Batavia cease to be a home rule unit?” 

The City may not use public resources either to advocate for or against this proposition, but we want to make every effort to provide voters with factual information so that they may make an informed decision.

HOME RULE INFOFor that purpose, the City has created a page on its website where residents can find helpful information for education about what home rule allows and also the limits of home rule authority. The City intends to add to these educational materials on an ongoing basis and to hold meetings to respond to any questions that you may have about home rule.

Currently all traffic has shifted to the northbound lanes and will remain in place until the week July 30th where traffic will be shifted back to the southbound lanes to finish utility installations, which require Rt 31/Batavia Avenue lane closures.  Lane closures started the week of June 11on Rt. 31, reducing north and south to one lane in each direction.  Residents and motorists are advised to reduce speeds and expect delays as they travel through the lane closures on Rt 31/Batavia Avenue.  For more information on the project go the project website:
