BOND COUNTY BOARD TO STOP ISSUING PERMITS FOR BILLBOARDS

 

The Bond County Board met Tuesday morning at the courthouse.  After discussion the board voted to stop issuing permits for billboards in the county while more information is collected.  The topic came from a new billboard constructed on route 127.  The county does not currently have a sign ordinance and there is concern on the board that more billboards could be built without the county having any control.  While more information is gathered it’s possible that a sign ordinance could come before the board in a future meeting.  Until then no more permits will be issued by the county to build billboards. 

 

The board also approved the Fayco Budget for next fiscal year.  It is a deficit budget and Fayco is owed nearly 1.8 million dollars from the State of Illinois according to Fayco director Bill Lindberg.

 

The board gave permission for the annual homecoming barbeque by the Comets Sports boosters.  The sports boosters will be cooking on the courthouse lawn on Friday September 24th to correspond with homecoming week and the homecoming football game that night.
