Retiring Skokie Manager Al Rigoni To Be Honored Monday

Plus, a snowman building contest, be sure to park on the even-numbered side of the street Monday, and other Skokie things to know this week.

  • The Skokie village board meets Monday at 8 p.m., with a presentation honoring longtime Village Manager Al Rigoni, who is retiring at the end of the month. 
  • A snowman-building contest--how fun! The Village Inn Pizzeria & Grill is calling all contestants to build Frosty on the sidewalk in front of 8052 N. Lincoln, Skokie, on Thursday.  Prizes for the winners. More info here. 
  • Have a pancake breakfast with Santa Saturday morning at Oakton Park as the Skokie Park District holds a Breakfast with the Big Guy.  You have to preregister.

Would it be possible for him to leave 2 weeks early? That could save the Village approximately $10K based on his $250K salary. And could go toward recouping the $20K the Village spent on a consulting firm, to do a nationwide search for a replacement. When in the end they hired from within anyway. Claiming that that hire was their "unanimous first choice". Also oddly adding that wooing the former Village employee in Michigan was just "unfounded rumors", when two people including the guy himself confirmed it. The first task of the new Village Manager should be to hire some spin doctors, who won't contradict themselves in the very same press releases. But they'd probably need a consulting firm for that too.
