    Cook County Board President joined leaders of the Cook County Land Bank Authority on Saturday for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at an Englewood home

    Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle is set to introduce a measure on Thursday that would tighten her administration’s oversight of the Cook County Land Bank Authority, which is in search of a new executive director following the departure of Rob Rose last month.

    The ordinance (21-2677) would empower Preckwinkle to appoint Rose’s successor, whose confirmation would still be subject to a vote by the land bank’s board. Existing rules say the director should be appointed by the land bank board, whose members are appointed by Preckwinkle.
