Mt. Pulaski, IL. (ECWd) -
In a stunning Special School Board Meeting this evening, June 17, 2015, the Mount Pulaski School Board had a motion to approve the "agreement" with Meridien / ReLight Wind Farm that was, in many opinions, nothing short of bribery on the part of Meridien.
The meeting started at 8:00 p.m. and the vote happened at around 9:30 p.m. There was a considerable amount of public comment prior to the vote.
The motion failed, and the agreement was not approved. Mt. Pulaski School Board voted not to be prostitutes for Meridien / ReLight.
That was the only item on the agenda.
There is still some apprehension that the Wind Farm will try and "sweeten" the deal in the near future.
