Late 'braking' news
By Ralph Banasiak
Like Palatine Mayor Jim Schwantz, Downers Grove Mayor Robert Barnett and Broadview Mayor Katrina Thompson, proclaimed May as National Bike Month, using Palatine's proclamation as a template.
In Broadview, Mayor Thompson is known for leading Saturday community bike rides.
The Cook County Board of Commissioners also passed a resolution May 13, spearheaded by Commissioner Scott Britton (14th District), celebrating May as Cook County's Bike Month.
Joined by eight co-sponsors, the resolution underlines the county's commitment to "its first-ever plan for bicycle infrastructure," and to equitably "enhancing facilities to support bike commuting and other purposeful bike trips."
