From WegoWeb:

This information was included under a cover that read:

"As part of improving communication with you on the happenings in the City of West Chicago, our firm is launching a Weekly Media Update email to better provide brief, up-to-date, newsworthy items in a “bullet point” format to those of you in the local and regional media.

These updates won’t replace the City’s traditional press releases; rather, they supplement these efforts by providing a broader range of potential news or feature items without having to read a full article on each point.  Key City events will continue to be supported through the development of more detailed press releases and personal contacts.

Media updates will be sent each Friday to you and other print, broadcast, and online outlets.

Thank you in advance for your attention to these updates and for your help in covering the special and surprising city that is West Chicago.  If you have questions, comments or suggestions on improving these updates, please contact Gabrielle Wallace at the telephone number or email address below."

It sounds like the city is serious about trying to keep the citizens informed.  This is a good thing.
