I'll be back. I've been doing a lot of research; we have two strong bids from WM and PDC to expand and operate the City/County Landfill. Four hours of testimony and questions this morning. Two massive hard copy presentations to try to understand. Full Board meeting tonight on County issues. Peoria County is in pretty strong financial shape as are our fund balances. We carry less than $2 million in debt. I am in full agreement with Administrator Urich that we wan't to maintain a strong financial position. We are not in agreement on some spending but our full board advises our administrator.
We've lost some money on investments but so have most other governmental bodies not to mention the private sector. (Includes me) All capital expenditures are on hold.
I wrote an "Opinion" on Bel-Wood that will appear in the JS this weekend with Board member Salzer writing an opposite opinion.
Doing a lot of reading. playing tennis plus I seem to have less energy than I had 5 years ago. Hmmmmm.
