Ending pension donations for DuPage forest board

It is my pleasure to inform you that as of midnight Aug. 31, 2017, pension contributions for the current elected officials at the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County have ceased.

The board took no action to file a resolution with the IMRF affirming that a certain number of hours are required to do the job. In letting the deadline pass without taking action, the taxpayers of DuPage County and the mission of the forest preserve district have benefited in that those monies can now be used fulfilling the mission of the district.

I am certain that all seven commissioners will continue to work diligently as the district embarks on an exciting master plan process. Thank you to those who pay attention and take the time to express an opinion.

Mary Lou Wehrli

Commissioner, District 5
