On Sunday, Simone Leger finished 6th in the medley and freestyle relay, a 7th in 50 backstroke and 8th in the 200 Individual Medley. To all Huntley Barracuda swimmers. Congratulations! Despite recent negative publicity about the cleanliness of the Huntley schools, the administration of the Huntley Consolidated School District recently released an administrative bulletin expressing confidence in the custodial staff at the Huntley Schools and appreciation for their hard work. According to Superintendent Hartley, significant improvements have been made in the past twenty months; most of those improvements came because of hard work by the custodial staff. Dr. Hartley says that the negative publicity has not been all bad, that it has helped in two ways. One, it has resulted in additional resources allocated to cleaning and maintenance. Two additional positions have been added to the custodian and maintenance services of the school district within the past year. In another increase in resource allocation, several maintenance actions have been out-sourced. People from various sources will be in the buildings over the next few weeks performing repairs. The second way the negative publicity has helped is that the Huntley School system is now back on course in the efforts to convert operation of the schools to a site based management style. The site based style places more emphasis on each school building operating as team. In line with this style, reorganized custodian employees have been reorganized. Custodians now report directly or indirectly to the principal in the building to which assigned. Huntley Police Department Sets 1996 Goals By Randy Walters Chief of Police On March 6th, 1996, members of the Huntley Police Department joined together to develop a Mission Statement and Goals for the year 1996. In a "workshop" environment, department members took an in-depth look at their role in the community, analyzed their perception of what the community needs, and took the first step toward focusing on "Community Policing". The end product is designed to be the standard by which the department operates for the next few years, with a focus on ten goals for the coming year. Credit for the development of the Mission Statement and Goals goes to the members of the Huntley Police Department, who serve the citizens of Huntley on a daily basis. The following document is their product and an example of what you, the citizens, can expect for 1996. Huntley Police Department Mission Statement The Huntley Police Department will take a proactive stance to insure the safety and well-being of all people in the Village of Huntley. The members of the Department will enforce all laws in a professional manner. We will provide a well trained staff to respond to emergency and daily needs of the community.
