Fellow Blue Island city council members will gather Wednesday, along with other friends and loved ones, at the funeral for Alderman Michael Janko.

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

Mayor Domingo Vargas spoke about his friendship with Janko and their shared love of corvettes.

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.
