Village Administrator Tim Gillian announced on Nov. 23 that he will retire on Jan. 29. A lifelong Forest Park resident, he was hired by the village council in August 2009 to replace Mike Sturino. Gillian had previously served as a village commissioner.

Gillian said he informed the department heads and staff earlier in the day.

“It was a really tough decision, but I’m looking forward to the next chapter,” said Gillian.

More to come.
