After two explosive meetings, Worth’s board back to normal
There was no yelling or swearing.
There were no police patting down people who wanted to enter the meeting.
There were no TV cameras from Chicago.
It was just a normal meeting.
Worth trustees handled a variety of routine business matters Tuesday night during a brief board meeting that got everyone home in time to see the Blackhawks playoff game.
No one asked to address the board, a departure from the array of comments made during the past two meetings in April, mostly regarding the Brittney Wawrzyniak death investigation.
Those meetings sizzled with emotion and packed some fireworks but Tuesday night the board was able to go about with its routine business with little stress.
Wawrzyniak’s family members did not appear at the meeting despite a pledge from some that they would continue to attend. Worth police recently closed the case, ruling Wawrzyniak’s death accidental.
Last Friday, Eric S. Johnson of Midlothian was sentenced to 3 ½ years in prison for selling a prescription drug to Wawrzyniak on the night that she died.
