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.
