Mayor Linda Soto seeks letter of interest for appointment as Trustee.

On September 30th the Mayor received an expected letter of resignation from long-time Trustee, Gary Walkington. The Grayslake Gelatin Farm property located in Hainesville on the south side of Route 120 off of Hainesville Road was auctioned off last year and the Northbrook Sports Club acquired most of the property. Gary was the Farm Manager and lived on site.

Gary Walkington has served the community as an official for almost twenty years and will be missed by all. He has assured the Mayor, Board of Trustees and staff that he is available for any questions or assistance that may be needed in the future.

Trustee Walkington’ s last board meeting will be on Tuesday November 11th at 7:00 p.m. as he soon will no longer be a resident of the village. Mayor Soto is asking residents who are interested in being appointed Trustee in November, to serve the remainder of his term, which expires in Spring of 2015 to submit a letter interest as soon as possible and no later than Monday, November 3rd.

Any resident seeking this appointment should know they would have to be a qualified candidate and run in the 2015 Spring election if they wanted to continue as Trustee beyond the Spring.  Courtesy Election Candidacy Packets are now available at the Village Hall from the Village Clerk, Kathy Metzler.

Please drop off or mail Letter of Interest to: Mayor Linda Soto, Hainesville Village Hall 100 N. Hainesville Road Hainesville, IL 60030 (after hours drop box on north side of building) or email: lindasoto@hainesville.org
