Cook, who has been the village's top administrator for the last seven years, will serve through the end of July. Village President Tom Cauley said the search for Cook's replacement has already begun.
Hinsdale village manager David Cook will leave his post at the end of July for a new job as executive director of the Intergovernmental Personnel and Benefits Cooperative (IPBC) after he and the village's board of trustees were unable to agree on a contract extension.
