Bellmont, IL. (ECWd) -
Bellmont, Illinois Mayor Gary Lance was appointed to fill the vacancy created by a resignation on February 18, 2020.
According to Village Trustees (and verified on a phone call I had with him), one of his first actions was to change the locks on Village Hall to lock the Village Trustees out of the building.
This action was never approved by the village board, but he did it anyway, lacking any authority to change them.
From all appearances, this Mayor wants things kept secret.
It makes us wonder if the four trustees who voted him into office are having "buyer's remorse" right about now...
