By on April 11, 2014

ELBURN—Wayne Byerhof recently announced his resignation from the Elburn Police Commission upon the end of his three-year term , which will conclude on April 30 of this year.

“I have served the village of Elburn and the Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District since March 13, 1959,” Village President Dave Anderson said, reading from Byerhof’s letter of resignation. “After 55 years, it’s time.”

Byerhof was a member of the Elburn police force for 52 years prior to becoming a police commissioner in 2011.

“Thanks is a small word,” Anderson said. “But I think it means a lot to a gentleman like Wayne Byerhof. Elburn would not be Elburn without Wayne. We thank you.”

Board members and audience members alike applauded Byerhof’s service.

Byerhof asked that there be no awards or ceremonies.
“I would like to just quietly fade away,” he said.
