About this Article
Island Lake's monthly attorney's fees have decreased significantly since the five-month legal fight between Mayor Debbie Herrmann and a group of trustees ended last summer. But the town's legal bills still are higher on average than the bills that were at the heart of the attempted municipal insurrection that led to Herrmann suing four trustees earlier in the year.
