Village of Lerna fills Trustee vacancy –

LERNA, IL. (ECWd) –

The village of Lerna, Illinois held its regular meeting on January 5, 2016.

During the meeting there was considerable discussion of water drainage, a decision was made to pay the water loan off, among other items, and a lengthy discussion on an appointment to the vacant Trustee position.

After the discussion on filling the vacancy, a vote was taken, and Mr. Robert “Bob” Boles (not sure of the spelling) was nominated and appointed on a 3 – 2 vote to fill the vacancy. He was immediately sworn in.

One of the only remaining items needing addressed, is that Mayor Pearcy (missing from this meeting) is still in a conflict with his full-time job as village maintenance supervisor. He is committing a new crime each and every day he goes to work. Too bad the Appellate Prosecutor’s Office is dragging their feet on it.

The new village attorney said he hasn’t finished researching the conflict of interest issue yet, but would finish in a couple of weeks.

  1. It seems that the entire legal/court system is bogged down with frivolous lawsuits and career criminals. It is amazing how drug addicts will tie up the time of the court system, month after month, refusing to pay their fines or perform their community service for their crimes. The court system (and society) would be better served by incarcerating the criminals that fail to comply with their sentence.

    Questions remain:

    Why do you think the Appellate Prosecutor’s Office is “dragging their feet on it”?

    Who ask the Appellate Prosecutor’s Office to investigate and/or prosecute these allegations?

    Just curious. Have a nice day.
