DuPage County Forest Preserve board votes to cut own salaries
Future commissioners and presidents of the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County may be taking a pay cut after the 2014 election cycle, if a proposed ordinance is passed.
The forest preserve's Board of Commissioners overwhelmingly voted 5 to 1 in favor of pursuing an ordinance that would reduce board members' salaries from $53,500 to $50,000 during an Aug. 12 board meeting, according to Forest Preserve Spokesperson Susan Olafson. The number is based on the amount that DuPage County Board members are paid, after the County Board elected to freeze salaries through November 2016, according to a County Board spokesperson.
Only outgoing forest preserve Board President D. Dewey Pierotti Jr. abstained from the vote. Commissioner Mary Lou Wehrli voted against the ordinance.
