Property Purchase Update11/19/2019
A Special Town Meeting was held June 25, 2019 seeking the authorization to allow the Supervisor and Township Board to enter into a Real Estate Sales Contract for the purchase of real property on Davis Road, McHenry County, Illinois, and to authorize the Supervisor and Township Board to execute any and all documents necessary to consummate said real estate purchase.
There were 98 people that registered for the meeting. After the Pledge of Allegiance, the meeting was called to order by Clerk Brenda Stack. Bob Pierce was nominated Moderator. The intentions for purchasing the property were having the necessary area to offer recycling programs and working with the Land Conservancy of McHenry County to restore the wetlands to their natural habitat. After a lengthy discussion, a vote took place by ballot. There were 67 in favor and 24 against.
After a lengthy process it was decided by the Board at our November meeting not to move forward with the purchase. We will continue to work with other agencies in providing recycling options for our residents.
