Why disappointing you may ask?  Because for the third month in a row this administration has failed to step up publicly to address a clear conflict of interest existing at our Village Hall. Matter of fact, there isn’t even a place on the agenda to report what was discussed at the specifically nonspecific Personal Committee meeting held Monday.

Residents deserve better.

Current Village of Barrington Hills Trustee Brian Cecola

Races for mayor and village president have been some of the most hotly contested showdowns in the Northwest suburbs this election cycle.

Here’s a recap of a handful of the headline-grabbing contests.

Barrington Hills

Two candidates are vying to become Barrington Hills’ next village president.

Brian Cecola, a business owner and six-year village trustee, is taking on Dennis Kelly, the Barrington Hills Park District board president and a local insurance broker.

Incumbent Martin McLaughlin won the state House 52nd District race in November and isn’t seeking reelection.

Cecola touted his hands-on experience in village government. Kelly touted his experience serving on the park board for eight years, saying he would bring a new set of eyes to village hall.

Cecola said the village has lowered its tax levy and cut spending during his tenure on the board and as chairman of the public safety and roads and bridges committees, while at the same time ramping up its road program.

Kelly, the former chairman of the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce board, said he would emphasize transparency (WHAT TRANSPARENCY?) and participation by residents if elected.

Donlea Road Cook

Donlea Road runs from Old Sutton to County Line Roads in Cook County (Please click on image to enlarge)

The Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways has awarded Barrington Hills a $12,514 grant for a drainage study along Donlea Road between Butternut and County Line roads.

The funding will be used to conduct a study in partnership between the village and department of transportation to address the flooding challenges that previously have required the closure of Donlea Road, officials said.

The grant was one of four approved Thursday by the Cook County Board of Commissioners.
