nfettered access to Shorewood village attorney services means any miscreant with a phone can start the meter running, and YOU pay. Lawyers wanting to fix drunk driving tickets, village employees whose kids are arrested breaking into the library, trustees like Ellen Eckman sued over records destruction and former village presidents like Rodney Dow trying to profit by double dipping on records charges are among those listed in bills that cost taxpayers more than $360,000 in four years -- and the advice frequently is not even competent.
