Activists, Hazel Crest officials spar during board meeting (video)

This story is the third in a series.

Several members of an activist group opposed to the industrial redevelopment of Calumet Country Club were ejected from the Hazel Crest board meeting on Feb. 14 after they disrupted the proceedings in protest over an agenda change.

Five members of South Suburbs for Greenspace were removed from the regular board meeting, the first as the board was starting to consider a motion to annex the country club into the village. Three others were forcibly removed by police officers.
