Hinsdale High School District 86
Among other business at their Feb. 11 meeting, board members:
• learned that 3,000 COVID-19 vaccines were administered over four days the previous week to staff from the district, its feeder districts and the La Grange Area Department of Special Education along with community members. The district will serve as a vaccination site for second doses for four days in March.
• agreed to put proposed new textbooks and other materials for the 2021-22 school year on display at the administration center for the next 45 days before the board votes to adopt them March 25. Details about the books are in BoardDocs for the Feb. 11 meeting.
• voted unanimously to accept $700 in donations in memory of Di Dellaportas for the Transition Center. Dellaportas, who had been a regular sub at the center since March 2018, lost her battle with cancer in December.
Hinsdale Village Board
Among other business Tuesday, trustees:
• voted to install of stop signs for north and southbound traffic on Lincoln Street at Third due to an increase in crashes from none in 2017 to eight since February 2019 and to convert five uncontrolled intersections in the village to two-way stops (Hickory Street at Bruner, Adams Street at North, Bruner at North and Sixth Street at Oak and Park). Additionally, yield signs will be placed on Third Street at the intersection with Princeton Road.
• opposed liquor licensing requests by The Pride Store and the Urban Counter eatery, both located at the BP Amoco gas station at York Road and Ogden Avenue. A request to sell hard liquor at The Pride Store, in addition to beer and wine, was regarded by most trustees as undesirable expansion of its license. Nor did they want Urban Counter to sell beer and wine to in-store diners.
• approved an amendment to the agreement between the village and the Hinsdale Platform Tennis Association by which the HPTA will obtain a private $360,000 loan to fund the bulk of the KLM paddle tennis hut renovation project. The loan would be guaranteed by the village. The original agreement called for the village to pay the bulk of the costs, to be reimbursed by HPTA.
