Demands trustee response people in Richton Park done to know a who or what to this is the dilemma expressed Friday by Harold alte mus 4214 Greenbriar Lane a resident of Richton Hills in a Public letter demanding the resignation of either Richton Park mayor Kenneth j. Clark or trustee Dean Beery his most outspoken critic. Altemus wrote Clark and the six trustees to Tell them that people in the Village have very Little Confidence in their elected officials due to renewed Public disclosures of a possibly criminal acts by mayor Clark and continuing silence regarding the resignation of police chief Jerry Peters and two members of the police Force. Altemus made it Clear that his letter was written As a private citizen and not in his official capacity As chairman of the villages Parks and recreation Board. A Many Village residents did not raise their voices in protest at tuesday night s Village Board meeting because they Felt the elected trustees had All the facts and that the full truth would come out a Altemus wrote. A a the obvious collective silence on the part of All trustees was incomprehensible under the circumstances. A in the vacuum that Beery referred to it is time to let the chips fall where they May. Either Beery or Clark should resign a Altemus continued. A if Law enforcement officials Don t act shortly a citizens Board should be set up to determine the Validity of the charges and counter charges. If Beery a charges Are Correct Clark should resign. If they Are incorrect Beery should Altemus suggested that the Structure of a citizens Board to investigate Beery a charges against Clark should include the presidents of three Home owners organizations in the Village plus a resident of the East Side. A i make this suggestion since apparently the Board of trustees does not plan to pursue the Clark matter publicly a Altemus continued. A deception closed meetings and political jockeying at the expense of the Public cannot be tolerated any More. The residents of our Village deserve expect and demand a full documented in his letter Altemus referred to Berry a charges that Clark Abd traded in a a a junk Richton Park squad car on a new car he purchased from a Peotone Auto dealer without authorization from the Village Board. Clark tuesday night admitted his action but claimed it was a a Good Deal for the Village since the police department received $400 from him for the car instead of approximately Hoo he said was offered by two junk dealers. He claimed that he paid $529 for a new motor and $150 for a paint Job on the squad car a total of $1,079. He received $2,044 in Trade for the old Buick a a net of $965 on the Trade. Cark insists this amount is no More than the new car discount he could have received without a Trade. When Beery first revealed the details of the Auto a a Trade to the Village trustees last july All six signed a formal demand for Clarks resignation. Clark yielded temporarily but reneged at the next Village Board meeting.
