How long is the Village accepting applications for appointment to the vacant seat? What is the deadline?

There is no applications, Broda just picks one of his friends to be on the board. So one more person to vote with Broda.

60 days - Broda has 60 days to collect information from interested persons and make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees. Broda's recommendation has to be approved by the Board. 60 days brings us to Jan 4, 2013 - after the deadline for the filing period for candidates which is Dec 24, 2012. It would be pure political motivation and manuvering for a trustee to be appointed prior to Dec 24, 2012. Let's see if a special meeting gets called for ANY date between Dec 24 - Jan 4. Maybe it can be an "emergancy" like that June 3, 2009 secret meeting Broda called....

Broda will probably appoint his campaign committee chairman/next door neighbor...opps, maybe not, since he's on the short list for library trustee.

Word is Broda is prohibiting public comment at Monday night's Board meeting. The Open Meetings Act requires that public bodies give members of the public an opportunity to speak at any and all public meetings. Public bodies are authorized to adopt rules regarding the public comment portion of a meeting. Such rules may limit the time allotted for the public to speak.... but they can not prohibit public comment!! Time for Broda to go.

OMG. Broda is violating the Open Meetings Act again?!?! LAW in ILLINOIS says this regarding Open Meetings: (g) Any person shall be permitted an opportunity to address public officials under the rules established and recorded by the public body.

When will Broda learn to follow the law? http://cleanlisle.blogspot.com/ http://lisle.patch.com/articles/ag-public-access-office-inquiry-into-potential-open-meetings-act-violations
