In attendance at the first Shorewood Village Board meeting of the month, I found that with only five members present that the Board acted more informally than during any of my other experiences. I've always thought that a 7-person board functions too ceremoniously in its actions. A five-member board seems to be just right
Besides, 60% of the trustees present were woman. Quite an achievement, equal representation at last.
Now that the Board will be coming up with a new budget and our program and spending priorities, our next major focus will be on two seats coming up for election. One element of excitement after another.
