GEL SHARE: COD seeks de-annexation from Glen Ellyn over tabled agreement

College of DuPage President Robert L. Breuder with his wife Wendy

College of DuPage officials announced that they will pursue de-annexation from the village of Glen Ellyn after the Village Board voted Monday night to table an intergovernmental agreement previously reached by both parties on April 19.

The COD Board of Trustees unanimously approved the agreement at its April 28 meeting. COD President Robert L. Breuder informed Village President Mark Pfefferman in an April 29 communication that failure by the village to act on the agreement would result in COD pursuing de-annexation.

It wasn’t just hot dogs and hamburgers cooking at Glen Ellyn’s Inaugural Backyard Barbecue Cook-Off held last week on October 10th, on the 700 block of Willis. Eighteen teams competed for first and second place trophies along with bragging rights for the year. View photos from event courtesy of Sue Nelson.

Having attended several Village Board meetings and recently attended the latest Glen Ellyn Park District Board meeting, I was curious about some differences in how the two Boards handle or solicit public input during its meetings.

It seems the Glen Ellyn Park District currently limits public participation to one 3 minute time slot per person towards the beginning of its meetings. It does not appear that the GEPD board solicits public input thereafter during agenda topics discussed by the board during its meetings, thus limiting public interaction and input.
