Two Fox River Grove officials were charged Wednesday with using village funds to connect a sewer line to a new home one of them owns, authorities said.
Daniel Hughes, 43, superintendent of the village's Water and Sewer Department, was charged with two counts of official misconduct and two counts of attempted theft of government property.
John Reese, 43, assistant superintendent of the Streets and Parks Department, was charged with two counts of official misconduct.
