DAIRY DAYS NO LONGER; IT'S NOW A DAY ON THE FARM

 

It was just announced Tuesday, that an annual event, in downtown Greenville, will be moving to a new location this year.  Dairy Days will now be called "A Day on the Farm" and will be held out at the American Farm Heritage Museum. The event will encompass many traditional attractions, as well as dairy.

 

A Day on the Farm will continue to be part of the National Road Festival.  Further details about the event will be released in the next couple of months.


NEW LICENSE PLATE CREATED TO HELP AUTISM SERVICES AND RESEARCH

 

Illinois Department of Human Services recently announced that Illinois residents are now able to help fund Autism research and raise public awareness by purchasing official state autism awareness license plates.  A portion of the proceeds, from the license plates, will be contributed to the Autism Awareness Fund.  The new license plates are just one of many efforts of the Autism Task Force to increase support and education of this complex neurological disorder.

 

According to Dr. Carol Adams, the task force has made tremendous progress on early intervention services, family support systems, transition support and increased federal funding. Applicants, for the special license plate, agree to have $15 of their $40 original issuance fee and $2 of their $25 renewal fee deposited into the Autism Awareness Fund through the Secretary of State’s office.

COUNTY BOARD TO HOLD MEETING ON RECYCLING

 

The Bond County Board met Tuesday night and approved three zoning requests recommended by the Zoning Board of Appeals.  Willie Macon was at the meeting to request an appeal for a denial of a special use permit months ago in regards to his one acre tract of property with a mobile home on it.  After a lengthy discussion, it was decided to table any decision until more information could be gathered on a possible civil legal matter regarding some adjoining property.

 

Under old business, a letter had been received by the Bond County Board about the Platt Act and the possibility of requiring affidavits. State's Attorney Chris Bauer commented, that legally, you can not require an affidavit for every deed registered.  He said, the only way to make sure the deeds are correct is to hire somebody to review them.

 

In other business, board members voted to hold a special public meeting at 6:30PM on February 19th, prior to the regular meeting, in reference to the recycling program that has been discussed this past month.  And the regular February 5th meeting has been changed to Wednesday, due to the Illinois Primary Election.  Board members also granted a request, from the Bond County Right to Life, to hold a prayer vigil on the courthouse lawn on January 22nd, in conjunction with the March for Life.
