Task force may help guide process of ending road district, moving it to Naperville Township jurisdiction

If approved by board members in May, the task force would meet six times in the next year, with all meetings would be posted and open to the public. Bedford said he envisions the task force would include people who live in the incorporated and unincorporated areas in Naperville Township.

According to state law, consolidation isn’t required until 2021, so the task force wouldn’t necessarily be able to enforce actions but could make recommendations to the current highway commissioner and future township board members.

“We can’t dictate how (consolidation is) going to happen, but we can give advice,” Bedford said. “In 2021, there will be a new board elected. (We can say) ‘This information can be used as advisory, and by next year you’ll have one year to look at these advisory items and start to act on them to see if you can’t have them in place and ready to go in 2021 when a new board takes over.’”

Task force may help guide process of ending road district, moving it to Naperville Township jurisdiction

A seven-member task force may begin meeting this spring to help advise Naperville Township and road district officials on consolidation between the two groups.

More than 75% of voters April 2 said they want the Naperville Township road district consolidated with the rest of the township. As a result, the Naperville Township highway commissioner position will be eliminated in 2021 when the road district — a separate taxing body — is dissolved and its responsibilities moved to the jurisdiction of the township.

The topic was raised Tuesday at the Naperville Township Annual Meeting, Supervisor Eddie Bedford said. A proposal that a seven-member task force be created to advise on consolidation gained unanimous support from the 85 or people in attendance at the meeting, Bedford said.
