Village Government

Village Attorney Tressler, LLP made a statement at the last Village Board meeting regarding the lawsuit brought against the Village by Trustees Tim Allen and Tony Reyes.

Of particular note are a few sentences:

The complaint contains a number of allegations that have not been ruled on by the Court, including alleging that the Village President “unilaterally and unlawfully adjourned the January 24, 2013 committee of the whole meeting”. Plaintiffs’ attorney conceded at the TRO hearing that Section 1-5-2A of the Village Code gives the President the right to unilaterally adjourn meetings.

The Court did NOT address any of the other allegations or requests for relief contained in the TRO. There have been statements made that the Village President “broke the law”.
