Bloomingdale residents want to elect village clerk
Bloomingdale residents overwhelmingly want to elect their own village clerk rather than allow local officials to appoint someone to the post.
With all 23 precincts reporting Tuesday, roughly 68 percent of voters chose to continue electing the clerk every four years.
Their other option on the ballot was to give the village president permission to pick a candidate who would then be approved by the village board.
Bloomingdale officials put the question to residents in part because interest in the clerk's job has waned and it frequently has become necessary to recruit candidates to run for the post.
The elected clerk will continue to serve as keeper of village documents and recorder of meeting minutes.
