Rolling Meadows mayor vows to save July 4 parade
May 1, 2012 5:01 PM - Rolling Meadows will have a July 4th parade, even if it's only Mayor Tom Rooney and a few friends marching down the street playing kazoos, the mayor vows. He's encouraging residents to help him pull off a low-cost parade, necessary since the city yanked its $17,000 from the event last fall. "What mayor or city council would want to go down as the ones who were there for the one year there wasn't a parade?" the mayor asks.
