Few attend local township meetings
At December’s Whiteside County Board meeting, just two constituents showed up. Everyone else who attended either belonged to the board or worked for the county.
That’s in a county of nearly 60,000 people. For tiny townships, boards can go years without members of the public showing up.
East Grove Township, population 256, is the third smallest of Lee County’s 22 townships. John Cruise, East Grove’s supervisor for 16 years, said constituents have attended one meeting in that time.
