Trustee alleges mayor violated Open Meetings Act


Lake Zurich Mayor Suzanne Branding has come under fire from Trustee Rich Sustich, who alleges she violated the Open Meetings Act. The complaint is the most recent event in a string of Lake Zurich officials being questioned for violating the law since 2009.

Trustee Richard Sustich, who was reprimanded last year for breaking the law, wrote to the attorney general’s office last month, saying Branding violated the Act by organizing a group, the Lake Zurich Industrial Zoning Roundtable.
