Term Limits Commission to Give Final Report
The process that began in late March is coming to an end as Tinley Park's Term Limits Commission will present its final report at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18, in the Council Chambers at Village Hall. Doug Cantor, the panel's research director, will give the presentation on whether the village should adopt term limits for elected officials, and commission members then will offer their comments. There also will be a chance for residents to give their opinions about the report.

After this presentation, the Village Board has 60 days to act upon the commission's recommendations.
What will the commission decide? In August, Cantor presented findings that showed term limits for Tinley Park's elected offices could be beneficial, according to reports. But the panel hasn't publicly backed that research, with one commission member, former Blue Island Mayor Don Peloquin, telling TribLocal in July that he doesn't think term limits at the local level are necessary.
