Throughout the country Drug Courts have been extensively researched and have been found to reduce recidivism, ensure client compliance, and save money. After more than a year of planning and preparation the Livingston County Drug Court officially began in March 2018 with a goal to use a combination of accountability and treatment to support and compel drug-using offenders to change their lives and improve the community by reducing drug-related crime.

Livingston County State’s Attorney Randy Yedinak and Circuit Judge Jennifer Bauknecht will give an update the how the program is going.

RSVP no later than Monday, September 10 to 815.844.5131 or admin@pontiacchamber.org

The annual Threshermen’s Parade on Sunday, September 2 and steps off at 1:15 pm rain or shine!

As always it will wind through the streets of downtown Pontiac. It starts at the Mill Avenue bridge and winds it way to Madison and turns right and then turns right on Main Street.

Currently, the weather currently looks to be a little hot and humid that day with scattered thunderstorms.

Between 10,000 and 15,000 people come to see the parade each year. Hope to see you there!!!!

If you have any questions, contact the Pontiac Area Chamber at 815.844.5131.
