One correction: Judge Fellheimer used to be the Chief Judge, that position has term limits so now Casey Costigan is the Chief Judge.
Remember when the Town announced they had hired outside counsel to advise them on moving forward after the referendum court case declared Normal incorporated?
Evidently the advice was to wait until you get sued because nothing was done to resolve the issues. Below is what that advice cost taxpayers, keep in mind this is not the same law firms involved in the current case. No bills are available for them yet.
I didn’t receive anything itemizing the $1,436.24 bill. Obviously very little time was devoted to resolving the issues raised in the referendum court case if advice only cost $306.00.
