Political banner at Flossmoor Metra station removed by rail agency

A Metra police officer this week removed a political banner from the railing above the north entrance to FIossmoor’s commuter station.

Metra spokesman Michael Gillis said the banner was removed by an officer on March 8.

“We don’t allow political signs on our property,” Gillis said on Friday.

Tod Kamleiter, Flossmoor’s deputy police chief, said his department received a complaint about the banner, which was located over the station walkway just east of Sterling Avenue. Police determined the railing was not village property and contacted Metra, he said.
