Wednesday morning’s organizational meeting marked a watershed moment in the history of the Grundy County Board of Supervisors with the swearing in of new District 2 Supervisor Heidi Nederhoff.


“I think precedent is being set today in Grundy County. As I recall, I don’t think there have ever been two women that have served on this board (at the same time),” new chairman Mark Schildroth said. “It’s a new era.”
