About this Article
Former Island Lake police officer Billy Dickerson has been reinstated after a three-year absence from the department. Dickerson claimed he was improperly terminated in 2010. His reinstatement was approved by a 4-3 vote Thursday. Dickerson, an Island Lake resident, actively campaigned for new Mayor Charles Amrich’s slate this spring. Amrich cast a tiebreaking vote, and all the trustees who sided with Dickerson were part of Amrich’s slate.
