Peoria County's New Asphalt Ordinance

Judge Mike Mihm reportedly said "slow down and get me the facts" while granting an injunction to Consolidated Paving, Inc., who was one of two pavers who filed lawsuits against this County's hastily presented questionable ordinance.

While the JS reporter said the County Board approved this ordinance, this reporter, as usual, left out some important detail, one being that the ordinance was opposed by Republican County Board members Bob Baeitto, Brad Harding, Carol Trumpe, Stephen Morris, Brian Elssaser, Merle Widmer and Democrat Bill Prather.

The Land Use Committee meets again next Wednesday at the Court House, Rm 403, at 1:00 P.M.

It is outrageous that whoever the attorney is that is supposedly representing the Peoria County Board didn't anticipate this and save the taxpayers thousands of dollars in defense costs. Didn't even common everyday citizens stand at the podium and predict this would happen? And I'll bet they didn't charge a single penny.

The support of you and the other board members is appreciated more than you can know. Thank you Merle. Cassie
