The Barrington Hills Park District Board will hold their regular monthly meeting this evening via Zoom at 7:00 PM. Some of the topics for discussion include:

  • Swearing in New Commissioner Drew McMahon
  • Planting new trees for outdoor arena area
  • Review of outdoor arena options and next steps
  • Review Draft of FRVH Cooperative Agreement insurance requirements
  • Hanover Park Youth Tennis Club use of tennis courts at Countryside School

Some may recall the April 14th agenda included, “Swearing in New Commissioners,” which we found odd since the Cook County Clerk had not yet certified the April 6th Consolidated General Election results yet. The Clerk’s April 27th certification of the election results can be viewed here.

Knowing what absolute sticklers our Park Board is when it comes to policies, procedures and the law, we have every confidence this was just (another) oversight or typo on their part.  We’ll see tonight.

It seems that Barrington Hills Park District officials believe the less residents are informed, the better off they are.

The Barrington Hills Park District Board will hold their regular monthly meeting this evening via Zoom at 7 PM.  A copy of their agenda can be viewed here, but just as we’ve cautioned repeatedly, don’t expect much information.  

There are no minutes available from the February meeting for the public to review online, nor is a recording of the Zoom meeting. The District WAS kind enough to include taxpayers with their 2019 Annual Financial Statement (found here) when we pointed out one of their lapses in transparency last month.

Information on how to join the Zoom meetings tonight can be found here.

We should also note that last week the District Advisory Committee met on March 2nd.  The notice can be found here, but there was no agenda posted nor any minutes. Even more disappointing, when searching the District website (found here), there’s no information to be found on this Committee.

The Barrington Hills Park District Board will hold their regular monthly meeting this evening via Zoom at 7 PM.  A copy of their agenda can be viewed here, but just as we cautioned last month, don’t expect much information (or any, really).

There are no minutes available from the January meetings for the public to review online.  They were kind enough to provide us with their 2021 budget and appropriation documentation which can be viewed here,  however the most recent financial statement available on their website is from 2018.

The Barrington Hills Park District Board will hold their, “Annual Budget and Appropriation Hearing,” via video conferencing this evening at 6:45 PM. A copy of the agenda can be viewed herebut don’t expect to see any more than that.

You will not find a, “budget and appropriation,” because clearly, the District doesn’t feel it important for taxpayers to review such trivial information prior to the public meeting. If you MUST review them, it is assumed one can obtain a copy from the District office (but there are no guarantees).

At 7:00 PM, the District will be conducting their regular monthly meeting. A copy of their typically boilerplate agenda can be viewed here.

Once again, minutes from the prior District meeting are not available for public review. If they were, residents might have questions, and the last thing commissioners want are questions.

The person responsible for this blatant lack of transparency is Dennis Kelly, President of the Barrington Hills Park Board. Word has it he is now running for President of Barrington Hills.

Given the way Kelly treats his responsibilities at the Park District, in the unlikely event he were elected Village President, the Village would likely return to what most residents remember as “The Dark Ages” we experienced prior to 2013.

Information on how to join the Zoom meetings tonight can be found here.
