Morgan County Zoning Board publishes Agenda with votes already tallied –

Morgan County, IL. (ECWd) –

Nothing like validating claims of “rubber stamping” zoning appeals for wind companies.

The Morgan County Zoning Board of Appeals published its meeting agenda for tomorrow, which includes their proposed WECS (Wind) Ordinance.

The problem we see, is that the votes are already tallied (see page 15) for their Wind Ordinance vote.

Motion to Approve the above Recommendation No. 2020‐01 made by Members:_________;
seconded by Members: ________ (Votes in Favor of Motion to Approve: Dale Bainter, Terry Denison,
Daniel Little (Chair) and Roger Hardy; Votes Not in Favor of Motion: None; Abstain from Voting:
Jimmy Duncan; and Absent from Meeting / Voting: None).

If they already know the vote, when did they know, and how did they know?

Was their an unofficial illegal meeting where this vote was taken prior to publishing the agenda?

    I guess that’s one way to avoid long drawn out meetings.

    This goes on more than people realize. All of these public servants (or the vast majority) have been delphied. Look up the Delphi Technique. The only way to avoid being manipulated is to know what it is and be aware that you are being manipulated.

    This is why school boards do everything in their power to avoid electing a free independent thinker with a backbone. The Teachers Union need puppets on the school boards to go along with their outrageous demands.

    The votes are usually in before the meeting. Can we say open meetings act violations?

    I know the “wind” sales people already have people “lined” up and make a practice of trying to lease to county board members – so they have an “in” in the county (at least that’s what was done in our county). What I found amazing in our situation is those board members saw no conflict of interest. Oh, well. though this seems really illegal to take a vote or put in before it’s voted. It’s like why show up for the meeting. Wind – at work,
