Police Merger: Hinsdale Board Pulls Referendum After Clarendon Hills Vote
The referendum would have sought to gauge resident support for the Hinsdale-Clarendon Hills police department merger on the April 9 municipal election ballot.
One night after the Clarendon Hills Village Board voted down the same item, the Hinsdale Board of Trustees pulled from its Tuesday night a vote on placing an advisory referendum on the April 9 ballot regarding the proposed Hinsdale-Clarendon Hills police department merger.
"The idea of a referendum first came form residents of Clarendon Hills," Hinsdale Village President Tom Cauley said. "Our thinking was that if the Clarendon Hills board voted in favor, we should do likewise to stay in lockstep with them."
But since the Clarendon Hills board did not pass placement of the referendum after lots of discussion Monday night, Cauley said it's best that the Hinsdale board not act on the item.
