The Marengo City Council voted to implement two Tax Increment Financing Districts (TIFs) in Marengo at the city council meeting on March 14, 2011 in city hall.

Anthony Fredrickson recently left his position as treasurer for the Village of Union.

Fredrickson, who served as treasurer for the village since January of 2007, said he left to spend more time building his new Ambit Energy Business. Sandy Sheahan is replacing Fredrickson as treasurer for Union. Fredrickson said he enjoyed his time as the Union treasurer very much.

When the Marengo-Union Library was turned into a Roaring 20's speakeasy on March 5, 2011, a robbery occurred, which several Marengo residents were asked to solve. The Friends of the Marengo-Union Library District presented "Mischief in Marengo," a skit written and directed by Wendy Garvey, a member at large of the friends of the library district. Several Marengo residents performed a skit where Jack Benny's fiancé's diamond ring was stolen.
