ARTHUR, IL. (ECWd) –
At its most recent meeting, the Arthur Park District placed on its agenda an action item to rescind Board Member Privileges.
I wrote about how the idea of offering an “incentive” to serve on the park board was approved in November of 2014 and laid out in detail how these so-called incentives were in violation of established law in this article (here).
At the meeting, the district did what they should have done, and voted to approve rescinding all board member privileges. Basically, they voted to follow the law.
We thank them for doing the right thing as it pertains to this matter!
Now if we could just get the rest of Illinois’ park districts and community colleges to follow this example we all might be a little better off.
