Edgar County Airport

Airport Meeting Canceled – No Posted Agenda


In a surprise move, Ben Jenness declared the Airport Board meeting canceled for failure to post an agenda 48 hours in advance as required by law.

After a couple quick questions from citizens in the standing room only croud, it was obvious there have never been agendas posted in recent years. Make you wonder how the board could have taken any action on November 13th allowing Jimmy Wells to do anything.

Illinois Statute: Open Meetings Act, 5 ILCS 120, Section 2.02, which states that an agenda must be posted at least 48 hours in advance and must be continuously available for public view during the entire 48 hour period prior to the meeting.

  1. The only people that deserve any “kudos” in this total
    fiasco are the Edgar County Watchdogs. From my
    observations of these two boards the past couple of
    months the “do as we damn well please” way of
    operating would appear to be over.

  2. Kudos to Ben Jenness. I look forward to more leadership
    action from him. As a senior member of county board, he
    has knowledge and experience to make good decisions.
