Here we go again…No more than a week after the Arlington Heights village board settles in at its new downtown palace, they now look at the police department next door and say “my goodness, how hideous next to our new house.” An architect is hired to look at the space needs for the police department and recommend expansion or a new building.

Now, granted, the department probably needs to expand. Like the village hall, the village has grown by leaps and bounds and is in need for some more room. But, there is a difference in increasing for functionality and going palacial. Who can look at the new village hall and say “My, that’s certainly functional!”

Let’s hope some sanity remains with the village in giving the police department what it needs without the opulence it gave itself.
