Effingham Park Board tables transgender bathroom issue

Posted:

EFFINGHAM, Ill. (WAND) - The Effingham Park District Board tabled discussion on creating a policy for transgender bathrooms and locker rooms throughout the district. 

A swim meet in early August will be held at the Richard E. Workman Sports & Wellness Complex. At least one team coming from out of town has a transgender swimmer.

The board sought recommendations from an attorney on the issue, but decided to wait until Park District Director Jeff Althoff could be present to formally address the issue. He was not at the meeting they held Wednesday.

They do plan to meet again before the swim meet.
