Oak Park likes a good symbol. We're not nuclear free for nothing.
On Monday night the Oak Park village board was expected to pass a symbolic resolution urging villagers to enjoy Meatless Mondays. It's not a law. No tickets will be issued. Becoming a vegetarian is not expected. But consciousnesses will be raised and that's the point.
The resolution comes at the urging of the village's volunteer public health board. They want us to think about the sources of our food, balance in our diet. They want local restaurants to add vegetarian options on typically slow Mondays.
