Anthony Pekar Replaces Jeremy McIntyre on Village Board
Round Lake Heights was another local village that did not have opposing slates running in the recent elections. In fact, Mayor Terry Lumpkins popularity won him a sixth term as Village Mayor. Other incumbents who were sworn in at the May 14th village board meeting were Trustees Andrew Walker and Jeff Katzel along with Village Clerk Marla McIntyre. Newly elected Trustee Anthony Pekar was sworn in to replace outgoing Trustee Jeremy McIntyre who had elected not to run for re-election. Trustee Jeremy McIntyre was honored for his service with a plaque from Mayor Lumpkins and the Board. Also sworn in was Shane Page as a part time police officer
During the meeting there was an updated presentation from CMAP regarding the ongoing long term plans for the Village of Round Lake Heights. I had attended the initial Q&A forum that was presented offering various plans for creating a shopping district that might end up being located off of Rollins Road. Tonight’s update was well received by the Board and Mayor Lumpkins asked “So what’s the next step?” With that, it was suggested that the Village hold an open house that would have eisle displays showing what was planned so that any future hearings wouldn’t blind-side the village residents. RLH residents should watch their local newsletters for an update on that open house schedule.
After the meeting everyone was invited to stay for cake and coffee. The cake had already been cut by the time I took the following photo that honored Mayor Lumpkins for his current 20 years of service.
