To have a bigger and nicer area to meet with constituents, North Chicago aldermen will be moving to another section of City Hall next month.

Talks of the move were brought up during the city’s economic, planning and zoning meeting Monday, Aug. 18, and each aldermen agreed.

North Chicago’s existing aldermanic offices are on the northern corridor of City Hall. The move would take them to an area currently being used by community information coordinator Tamara Siwula.

“It’s just a little bit bigger,” Mayor Leon Rockingham, Jr. said.

The aldermen don’t have set office hours and they typically don’t conduct business at City Hall other than occasional meetings with residents or to go over agendas before meetings.

Regardless of the frequency, Rockingham said meetings between aldermen and residents should be held in more appropriate office space.

“We like to accommodate the residents and they deserve something a little fancier,” Rockingham said.

“That office is where they were originally housed some 15 years ago,” Rockingham added. “It’ll be like going home.”

The move was put off until after the city’s Community Days, and the reorganization is expected to be completed quickly.
