The Joliet inspector general has been looking into what action the city can take concerning Councilman Jim McFarland’s use of city envelopes for political purposes.
The state’s attorney’s office last month said it would not pursue criminal charges in the matter, which was referred to it by the city in November.
McFarland has run into new legal problems since then after being charged with driving under the influence in connection with an incident July 10. He refused to take a Breathalyzer test when stopped at 2:26 a.m. on Interstate 80 in the New Lenox area, state police said.
