The Irshad Learning Center will have to wait a while longer before they can call Naperville home.
The DuPage County Board recently voted to table the decision on whether to allow the center to move into a residential neighborhood off 75th street.
The delay comes after a March 29th ruling by District Judge Rebecca R. Pallmayer where she found the county made an “arbitrary and capricious decision” by denying the permit.
Board members want further clarification on the process the judge wants them to take.
“We just want to talk a little bit about how we get there,” says Chairman Cronin. “And if the judge agrees that we have a meritorious position on that minor matter of how to get from point A to point B, then great. If the judge doesn’t then fine, but it’s just a discussion we’d like to have.”
Irshad Learning Center is also suing the county. The two year delay has cost the center property taxes and rental fees on another location, as well as legal fees.
Chairman Dan Cronin says the board does not have a problem paying the unspecified settlement.
The board will once again consider the matter at their June 25th meeting. The attorney for Irshad says they have no comment at this time.
