Lyons Township School Treasurer's Office Instituting Reforms After Scandal

But the township has stopped short of abolishing the organization or demanding the resignation of additional board members.

The Lyons Township School Treasurer’s Office is instituting a series of reforms following the scandals and legal action involving former treasurer Robert Healey, the Doings La Grange reports, including additional oversight for benefits, consolidation of accounts and reform in campaign contribution solicitation.

In a separate story, the paper also reported that some of the advice of the Better Government Association—the watchdog group that first called out Healy—was being set aside, such as the resignation of Healy’s fellow board members and the outright abolition of the Office.

“I think they’re definitely taking steps in the right direction, though there’s a lot of work to be done there,” Western Springs resident Martin Brown, who studied the Treasurer’s Office’s operations, told the paper.
