PARIS, IL. (ECWd) -
The Edgar County Board will consider and vote on appointing a two-person Airport Zoning Commission to research and make a recommendation to the Edgar County Board on Zoning Ordinance.
The meeting agenda says a three-person commission, however, it is our understanding that the Board will vote on appointing Jake Barrett and Robert Howery as the Edgar County Zoning Commission and not the county board member because of questions of whether a county board member can be appointed to the commission.
The need for a Zoning Commission arose out of Edgar County's violation of Grant Assurances preventing them from obtaining any new grants until the county established zoning as the law requires.
Also under consideration is a lease to Mid Continent Aircraft Corporation for the main hangar (1/2 of it) and another lease to Chris Patrick for the remaining 1/4 of the main hangar. There will still be 1/4 available for an interested party to lease.
