LANDOWNERS MAY GET OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE COAL RIGHTS

The Bond County Board scheduled a special meeting on Thursday, November 15, at 9:00 a.m., at the Bond County Courthouse.  One of the items to be discussed is the possibility of selling coal rights back to landowners in Bond County.  Board member Tom DeVore spoke with WGEL Radio earlier this week and said he plans to make a motion to allow land owners the opportunity of purchasing coal rights back from the county.  Bond County currently has a lease with Colt Coal Company in effect for approximately the next 14 years.  However, DeVore said there is nothing in the lease that would keep the county from selling the coal rights to land owners.  In this year’s election, an advisory referendum asked voters if coal rights should be offered for sale to land owners. The referendum received 6,061 yes votes and 813 no votes. Advisory referendums are not binding.  The board is also set to discuss next year’s budget and the concealed carry referendum.
