The Board Review:

Tuesday’s Board of Trustees had a fairly light agenda when compared to recent meetings, however there are still plenty of items of interest to residents.  

There were several proclamations. Two involved the Swallow Cliff Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR): one commemorating Constitution Week and the second honoring  the DAR on their 125th Anniversary. Linda Gray was on hand to represent her chapter and accept the proclamations, which she would carry to Washington, DC. A third proclamation commemorated the 25th Anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act. Representatives from Park Lawn were in attendance to accept the proclamation.

The Village of Oak Lawn voted to continue its red light photo enforcement contract with RedFlex on a month-to-month basis for up to one year. The Village Board also approved a resolution authorizing the execution of environmental indemnity and highway authority agreements with Exxonmobil Oil Corporation relating to property at 103rd and Cicero, and with Speedway, LLC regarding property on 95th Street.

Additionally, a resolution approving  award winning Monterrey Security Consultants, Inc.’s proposal for the Police Department’s civilian/guest services. The agreement includes all necessary indemnity, insurance and confidentiality provisions and is for a one year term.  

Monterrey Security Consultants, Inc. was founded in 1999 by Chicago native, Juan Gaytan, Jr. Their focus is to integrate best practices and protocols developed by law enforcement into the private sector to provide residents with the highest levels of service. They have worked closely with the US Secret Service, the US Department of Homeland Security and others to maintain the highest standards and practices.  

The vast majority of Monterrey’s supervisory and management staff are active duty Law Enforcement Officers and supervisors. In addition to serving Oak Lawn residents, they provide services to the Shedd Aquarium, Lincoln Park Zoo, Navy Pier, Archdiocese of Chicago, Catholic Charities, Concerts at Northerly Island, Lollapalooza, the  Chicago Marathon, Soldier Field, and at the University of Illinois.

There was some discussion of 2013 and 2014 crime statistics. Police Chief Murray did not agree with representations that were being made publicly and a letter from him was read aloud by Trustee Streit. The letter from Chief Murray that was read aloud appears below.
