North Judson Town Council Members Make Additional Appointments and Agree to Advertise for Open Positions

North Judson Town Council members voted unanimously to retain Wendy Hoppe as the town council president when they met Tuesday night.

As a part of their new bylaws, members also needed to establish a vice president. Councilman John Rowe was nominated and council members collectively agreed to appoint him to the position. Members also voted to retain Justin Schramm as their town attorney.

Additionally, members discussed remaining appointments. Clerk-Treasurer Andrew Rowe will serve as the town representative for Kankakee-Iroquois Regional Planning Commission and Wendy Hoppe volunteered to serve on the Rail Road Committee.

President Hoppe mentioned that there are still a number of seats that need to be filled for the Unsafe Hearing Authority, the Planning Commission and the Board of Zoning Appeals. Members agreed to advertise for the positions in order to see if any community members are interested in serving.

While discussing the open seats, members also established that they would like to see a representative from every department present at a meeting at least once a month so members can stay up-to-date about what is happening around town.
