Dixon Mayor Says City Looking to Future

By The Associated Press

DIXON, Ill. (AP) - The mayor of Dixon says the northern Illinois city won't be defined by a former comptroller who has pleaded guilty to federal charges she stole more than $53 million.  

Dixon Mayor Jim Burke gave his yearly state of the city address on Wednesday. He says Dixon will be defined by its beauty, history, culture and quality of life. Former Dixon comptroller Rita Crundwell pleaded guilty in November to charges she stole the millions from city coffers during her decades in office.  

The Telegraph reports that Burke says the city now has "comfortable" cash flow and doesn't anticipate having to borrow money.  Crundwell is to be sentenced in February.
