Trustee Dana Rzeznik has resigned from her seat on the village board and village officials are now looking for a new board member to take her spot, according to a village of Lake Zurich press release.
Rzeznik, who has been on the village board since 2009, "resigned due to obligations in her professional life
at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency," according to the news release.
The candidate selected to fill the vacancy will be appointed by Lake Zurich Mayor Tom Poynton with the advice and consent of the Village Board. The new trustee will complete Rzeznik’s term, which runs through May 2015.
Interested candidates for the new trustee vacancy must be residents of Lake Zurich and may submit a resume and letter of interest to the Village Manager’s Office, 70 E. Main Street, Lake Zurich, IL 60047 or email to email@example.com.
Prior applicants for village boards and commissions are encouraged to send their resumes even if they are still on file to express their continued interest. The Lake Zurich Village Board consists of six trustees who are typically elected at-large in non- partisan elections for overlapping four-year terms.
The village board is the legislative body of the Village government and determines all matters of village policy, approves Ordinances and Resolutions, sets the annual village budget, and approves capital expenditure projects. Regular meetings are held at village hall the first and third Mondays of each month at 7 p.m.
Trustee candidates should be interested in working on several important strategic priorities that the village is currently making progress on and are important for the long-term vitality and well-being of the village, according to the news release.
These priorities include revitalizing downtown, managing substantial TIF debt payments, addressing the potential use of Lake Michigan as a new public water supply, investing in public infrastructure, and creating alternative revenue sources using multiple and flexible strategies.
