BOND COUNTY BOARD APPROVES VACATING LOTS

 

The Bond County Board met in regular session Tuesday.  The brief meeting covered a lot of ground.  Zoning Administrator George Shaw requested that a segment of Pan Estates Subdivision, in Shoal Creek Township, be vacated and the lots be returned to their original agricultural zoning.  Lots 1 through 8 are owned by three landowners. The landowners will own a tract of land exceeding 5 acres once the lots are vacated.  In the past 27 years, there have been no taxable improvements constructed on any of these 8 lots. All back taxes are paid.  The cul-de-sac in Pan Estates will be left as is.  The board approved the vacation of lots 1 through 8 in Pan Estates. 

 

In other business, the Sheriff's report for December was approved and the Bond County Treasurer received $6,953 from the Sheriff's Department.

 

To see the meeting in it's entirety tune into New Wave Channel 3 at 6:00 tonight.
