The Plainfield Park District Board of Commissioners will meet this week to elect a treasurer and secretary, as well as set a date for a special meeting to discuss personnel.

The district is in the process of finding a new executive director following the departure of Garrett Peck in January. 

In April, the board appointed retired Elmhurst Park District Executive Director Richard Grodsky as the interim director as the search got under way.

The board is slated to conduct interviews with candidates this month, with plans to have a new director in place by July 21.

Currently, park district Director of Communications Doug Booth serves as treasurer and Executive Secretary Wendi Calabrese is secretary.

According to the agenda, the board will also vote on Grodsky's recommendation to keep Kavanagh, Grumley & Gorbald as the park district's legal firm.

Grodsky is also slated to make a reorganization presentation, while Director of Finance Maureen Nugent will give the board a 2014-15 budget draft presentation.

The meeting is at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Heritage Professional Building, 24023 W. Lockport St.

WOOF! I'm fine with keeping these documents/recordings. In this case, it doesn't matter so much to me that I'm going to take the lead on it. We each have to prioritize what we spend time and effort on and this isn't making the cut for me this week. More power to anyone who wants to pursue the preservation and publication of them, though.

This is not to be meant derogatory in any way. Just factual and a bit humorous. Here are who each of the preceding comments are from, chronologically. VICKY, TIM, ED, VICKY, TIM, DON, VICKY, TIM, VICKY, PLAINFIELD, TIM, RON, RON, VICKY. Love that Freedom of Speech Amendment!

TAI - Statements of fact can not be derogatory. Around here, we leave making those claims to the man-child on the village board. Relax, I'm not peck. I can take a jab without throwing a tantrum about it. - I mean, it's almost like there is a discussion, on a message3 board, with each person taking their turn. The more the merrier. Maybe you should have also posted party affiliation? You know, just to clear up that opposing viewpoints can have a discussion rationally(well, mostly. It always stands out, doesn't it).

I agree, TAI--I think it's funny, too! Not bad, as you say, just sort of funny/goofy. Sometimes it just plays out that way, I guess.
