GEL SHARE: Glen Ellyn Park District Cuts Costs

A new majority of Glen Ellyn Park District board commissioners wasted no time Tuesday implementing measures intended to emphasize fiscal restraint.

Trustee Peter Cooper

OPEN LETTER FROM VILLAGE OF GLEN ELLYN TRUSTEE PETER COOPER

Dear Friends:

It is almost precisely two years since I took my oath of office on becoming a Village Trustee for the Village of Glen Ellyn. During that time, I have tried to never lose sight of my sacred obligation to protect your trust and to pursue the best interests of our Village and its citizens. The work has frequently been hard and occasionally tedious, but it has almost always been rewarding.

The Village of Glen Ellyn announces that Manor Woods will reopen to the public on Saturday, May 7.

To celebrate the reopening of the site, the Village is hosting a reopening event at 10am on Saturday, May 7 at the intersection of Brandon Avenue and Illinois Street in Glen Ellyn, just south of Lincoln School and west of Sunset Park.

Please join the Village and Boy Scout Pack 52 for an Arbor Day celebration at the same location at 10:15am for the planting of a tree.

The UGLY

GEL SHARE: COD gives Glen Ellyn an ultimatum

College of DuPage and Glen Ellyn officials appeared poised to end a long-running dispute about whether the college can install electronic signs on campus.

But a last-minute change to a proposed intergovernmental agreement by the village has both sides pointing fingers, suggesting they could be back to square one.

The village had previously argued that the college’s signs violated village code. But under the deal, the college would be allowed to keep the existing signs and install five new ones. New signs larger than 200 feet would require discussions with the village.
