Given the superb job Phil Cotter has done heading River Forest's Public Works Department, we suppose it was inevitable that he would soon move on to bigger and better things. In his three years as director, Phil led an already excellent public works crew to an even higher level of public service. Phil brought new heights of responsiveness to the public and user-friendly service that all local governments would do well to emulate.
Given his track record here, we are confident that in a short time Phil will head a large city's public works department. He truly made his department River Forest's finest and will no doubt do the same for Roselle.
