Lawsuit claims Kildeer did not not perform police services paid for by Deer Park.
Deer Park is claiming that the village paid at least $1.1 million and possibly in excess of $1.6 million for police services to Kildeer that were not performed, according to Trustee of Public Safety for Deer Park, Jim Denny.

The Muddy Paws building, where Diane Eldrup is suspected to have starved 34 dogs to death, is going down. A demolition crew, M.
