JOLIET, Ill. (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A Joliet city councilman finds himself in a possible legal drama over the providing of insurance coverage to the Rialto Theater.

Pat Mudron is the Joliet city council’s liaison to the Rialto Theater and according to the Joliet inspector general, he broke city and state law because his firm provided insurance to the theater.

The IG report says it happened earlier this year after it was learned the new insurance premium for the theater was going to be $450,00 dollars, because the theater does not have a sprinkler system.

Councilman Mudron’s firm was able to get a premium for $280,000 dollars. Now, Joliet’s mayor told the Herald News he plans to remove Mudron as the theater’s liaison, but he’s not sure whether the council will take action regarding any alleged criminal wrongdoing.
