Palos Heights police said an investigation into Building Commissioner James Dougherty could soon come to an end.
Dougherty has been placed on administrative leave after unspecified allegations of misconduct surfaced, officials said. Palos Heights officials have declined to discuss what led to Dougherty being put on leave.
Dougherty's leave was the result of City action and not related to any criminal investigation.
Delaney said they are looking into the matter.
