"I worry that for those clients of ours at the township, those are people who fall through cracks, and I don't want them falling through this crack in the lack of a township supervisor," said Ald. Jane Grover (7th ward). "I have every confidence in Mr. Bobkiewicz."
Grover suggested that the city should delegate day-to-day oversight of the township office to Evonda Thomas, health director for the city of Evanston.
Ald. Don Wilson (4th ward) and Ald. Peter Braithwaite (2nd ward) both said it was too early to make a decision on a new appointment.
"I think it's important to have a supervisor, an elected position for the township," Braithwaite said.
Holmes noted that the city council could direct the city manager and health director in the short-term, while working to develop a more substantial plan to present to the community.
