    The case moves forward and looks like on a pretty fast track to be decided. More money in the meantime spent on a case that just seems pretty clear cut, it’s illegal! Hope Carlinville citizens are relooking at hooking up with the city of Litchfield and start getting that project going so water can start flowing to its citizens at a very affordable price – its legal but it is also a great deal that the city of Litchfield offered Carlinville several years back. The Mayor and most of the council, were not interested.??? Hopefully they will ask the Mayor of Litchfield to PLEASE come back and represent and try to still get a decent deal?
