I think this action was a violation of the IL Open Meetings Act as the name of the person the mayor proposed to appoint did not appear on the agenda. The public was not given notice to allow public comment on the proposed appointment. In Dixon, several trustees took action against the Mayor concerning an appointment. Their objection included the accusation that the appointment of a public official was in violation of the Open Meetings Act since the name of the person did not appear on the agenda. A judge agreed with the trustees and issued a temporary restraining order barring the new appointee from acting as a trustee, voting or taking part in any village business. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/ct-met-dixmoor-trustees-lawsuit-1228-20121228,0,3955053.story

Broda trying to shut out citizen input?!? Another violation of the open meetings act?!?! From the guy that once said.... "I think we've lost track of the residents. I want them to have input in government. I want to make sure their voices are heard." Joe Broda, Daily Herald Oct 26, 2000.
