The Village Board Meeting of March 5, 2018, was the scene for honoring Officers Hope and Spink for their heroism in rescuing the 12-year-old girl who slipped and fell into the wintry cold Silver Lake Outlet last month. One of her friends made the call for help, and the two officers responded rapidly, then wading into the water, pulled the girl out. She was immediately attended to by medical respondents who had also been notified. Mayor Rick Hauser presented the two Village Officers with Certificates of Appreciation, acknowledging that it is a time such as this that the community really understands the value of a village police department. Officer Spink is an SLI resident and the SLI community is proud to have him serving the wider community.
