Information submitted by the village of Lisle.

Marilyn Sucoe has been hired as the new Engineer/Stormwater Administrator for the Lisle. Sucoe replaces Mary Lou Kalsted, who retired after serving Lisle for 32 years and who was heavily involved with the April 2013 flood recovery operations.

Sucoe earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Illinois and is a Certified Professional Engineer and Floodplain Manager.  

She was employed by Engineering Resource Associates, the firm engaged by the Village of Lisle to help deal with the aftermath of the April 2013 flood. As a part-time consultant to Lisle for the past eight months, Sucoe gained valuable experience working with the Lisle community and flood recovery operations. This experience will help make the transition into a full time Village employee virtually seamless to both staff and the Lisle community.

Sucoe also worked for the City of Naperville and French & Associates in Park Forest.

Her experience includes helping administer the National Flood Insurance Program, preparing the Kane County Hazard Mitigation Plan, reviewing development plans, resolving local drainage and flooding problems, conducting IDNR floodplain management compliance evaluations, helping communities comply with the National Flood Insurance Program and Community Rating System Classification and more.

She is also a member of the Illinois Association of Floodplain and Stormwater Managers.

Lisle Mayor Joe Broda thanked Mary Lou Kalsted for 32 years of dedicated service and wished her well in retirement. Broda also added that “he was delighted the Village was able to hire Marilyn Sucoe and take advantage of her excellent experience and familiarity with the Village of Lisle’s flood plain operations. It’s a win/win situation for the entire community.”

Obviously, the Village does not have a revolving door policy (but should). What's next? Are we going to learn that the former village engineer is now working for Engineering Resources while also collecting an inflated pension due to that flood bonus?

There is no such thing as a 'certified professional engineer' in IL. You are either 'licensed' or not. Engineers are not 'certified'.

So this leaves little hope for the flood victims. She is the status quo.
