A special meeting of the Brookfield Village Board scheduled for Aug. 3 at 4 p.m. to swear in three new members of the Fire and Police Commission has been canceled, but likely will be rescheduled for sometime next week, said Village President Kit Ketchmark.
According to Ketchmark, he has identified the three new members for the board, but postponed the swearing-in after officials discovered a potential conflict of interest involving one of the prospective commissioners.
Instead of swearing in two members and waiting until the village's attorney can determine whether a conflict exists, Ketchmark said he preferred waiting until all three can be sworn in at once and begin training.
"I'm confident we will do it in the near future," Ketchmark said.
Ketchmark declined to reveal the names of those he proposes to appoint to the commision.
