Funeral to honor Blue Island Ald. Michael Janko

July 24, 2013 (BLUE ISLAND, Ill.)

The council met Tuesday night for the first time since Janko's death. A moment of silence was observed.

Janko was boating with friends just off the lakefront in whiting, Indiana last week, when he went into the water without a life vest and drowned.
