Once incorporation was approved by the vote and the first village officials were elected there had been a lot of material published in the newspapers about the problems that lay ahead for Lisle. At the second meeting of the village board, the village president, Thomas J. Malloy analyzed the village’s future and outlined their problems. The village still needed to address zoning and planning, sanitation and other concerns, but this would come with time. Lisle had the infrastructure in place so that it could function independently from the county. Within a month of the elections they were well under way to creating a police department and many other regulations for business in the village. Despite the fears of the community, the Village of Lisle was off to a stable start. This example of suburban government can be viewed as a grassroots organization that exists because the people created it and ran it. Lisle defied all odds and became a village after a nearly twenty year struggle.
