Warren Rejects Health Resolution


Recommended Posts

Tuesday, November 4

 

The Warren Community Unit School District 205 Board of Education rejected a public health resolution regarding clean air and water.

 

On Oct. 20, the six board members failed to approve the motion presented by Jim Francis, school board secretary and president of the non-profit environmental organization Helping Others Maintain Environmental Standards (HOMES.)

 

The resolution would have resolved that the district would "act in a prudent and precautionary manner to take measures to protect ourselves and future generations" by asking the state of Illinois to place a moratorium on "any building and operation of any development that will have the potential for adverse affect of the quality of life of our students and staff."

The school sits about three miles northwest of the large-scale dairy farm being constructed by California businessman A.J. Bos.

 

The motion failed with a split 3-3 decision. Francis, Don Hill and Mike Williams supported the motion; Rod Rogers, Kip Sabinson and Becky Riedel voted against.

This is really no surprise because they are only worried about revenue from housing and other tax entities. If they voted for it they may cheat themselves out of Tax Revenue for School Funding.

The school funding in this particular case is minuscule.

Citizens of Jo Daviess County could raise more than Bos is providing by holding a weekend craft fair/bake sale.
