Residents not qualified to evaluate village policies regarding traffic, pedestrian safety, Asperger says

E-mail Print PDF
February 12, 2010 La Grange Village President Elizabeth Asperger Monday night said she opposes a proposal to create a public safety commission because she does not believe that resident volunteers who would serve on it are qualified to evaluate policies developed by the village board and staff.

"We are, of course, always appreciative of our residents' willingness to assist the village," Asperger said. "But I don't believe that we are in a position to rely upon resident volunteers to assess matters related to police activity, fire activity or traffic and pedestrian safety."

Asperger expressed her views in response to an inquiry at Monday's village board meeting from Trustee Michael Horvath, who wanted to know why trustees had not been given a formal opportunity to publicly discuss and possibly take action on the commission he proposed.

Horvath raised the issue during the portion of the board meeting reserved for comment by any trustee on any topic.
