Trying to figure out who is up for election on the Crystal Lake City Council, I found the following claim under “Demographic Data and Statistics:”
Crystal Lake is well-positioned for growth, both geographically and economically. Located 50 miles northwest of Chicago, Crystal Lake benefits from a continually-growing population, workforce base, excellent schools, two Metra stations, park system and historic downtown. [Emphasis added.]
The only problem with that “continually -growing population” is that it is false.
