Park Forest board members affirm support for village manager

Village Hall

Park Forest Village Manager Tom Mick will remain in his post.

Following the Village’s regular meeting Monday night, board members, Mick, and Village Attorney Burt Odelson met in a two and a half hour executive session. Mick and Park Forest Mayor Jonathan Vanderbilt called the meeting after the two failed to reach agreement on several issues over the past month, after which both agreed it may be in the best interest of the community to consider a change in village manager.

Just before 10:30 p.m. board members emerged from the closed door meeting.

Vanderbilt thanked the audience of nearly 40 who remained for their patience and announced no action had been taken.

Tuesday morning, Mick told staff members an agreement between he and the board had been struck for him to remain in his post for the foreseeable future.

“It has been a pleasure to serve Park Forest as the village manager and I look forward to continuing to do that going forward,” Mick said.

Over the next few months, Mick and board members will take part in team building sessions.

“We as a board selected Tom to be our manager and together we’re moving this village forward,” Vanderbilt said.
