The regularly-scheduled, November meeting of the Merit Commission of the Sheriff's Department, to be held today at 10:30AM, is on the County calendar.
Only now it is not scheduled for today. The meeting has apparently been re-scheduled to November 8 at 3:00PM. Of course, there are immediate problems with that date.
The date is a Saturday.
More importantly, the date is four days AGO.
Since the meeting on the calendar is noted as "rescheduled" and not as "canceled", presumably the legal notice was given by posting the new date in a public place and by notifying the media, as required by the Illinois Open Meetings Act.
Why would this Commission meet on a Saturday? And why would it meet four days before its regular-scheduled meeting?
Something smells, and I don't think it's last week's fish.
