Minimum Wage & Paid Sick Leave Study Update

This past week the Village Board Finance Committee met to begin its study of the Cook County Minimum Wage and Paid Sick Leave Ordinances. At this meeting, the Committee reached a consensus to form a working group of community volunteers to assist in the study and ensure that diverse viewpoints across the community are represented. The Village is pleased to announce that former Village President John Jacoby has agreed to chair this working group.

The Finance Committee is seeking volunteers to serve on the working group. If you would like to serve, please email us at countystudy@wilmette.com to express your interest no later than November 30th.

The Finance Committee will meet on Monday, December 4th at 7:00pmĀ at the Lakeview Center (800 Gillson Park Drive) to make a recommendation to the Village Board regarding composition of the working group.
