As of the meet- ing, Chief Freer said the depart- ment had made eight arrests so far in January. The $31,000 found during the vehicle stop at Lake Fork could be shared by the city. Chief Freer said he all depended on how that case develops. , He told the council that the police department will be looking to seize and have vehicles forfeited under a provision of Illinois law. Drivers that are stopped for driving suspended have a new problem to face. The police agency conduct- hag the arrest can now apply to take the. vehicle and sell it. Chief Freer said the provision is useful depending on the amount of debt on the vehicle. The police department applied for a seizure - forfeiture on a recent vehicle. The vehicle had enough of a loan on it that the sei- zure - forfeiture was not pursued. Chief Freer said his department would continue to check on each vehicle for seizure- forfeiture when the driver is suspended. He said it would be only a matter of time, but there will be a seizure - forfeiture in some driver's future. Sales Manager/New Customer Development Sales experience & technical orientation preferred.
