PARIS, IL. (ECWd) -
This months Edgar County Board Meeting was held on January 8, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. in the Edgar County Courthouse.
During public session, I handed the airport committee and the board clerk a packet consisting of the following articles and a copy of the grant application Mr. Wells submitted to the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Aeronautics:
Part 1 - https://edgarcountywatchdogs.com/2013/11/fraud-in-fuel-farm-grant-application-part-1/
Part 2 - https://edgarcountywatchdogs.com/2013/11/fraud-in-fuel-farm-grant-application-part-2/
Part 3 - https://edgarcountywatchdogs.com/2013/11/fraud-in-fuel-farm-grant-application-part-3/
Final Article - https://edgarcountywatchdogs.com/2013/12/fraud-in-fuel-farm-grant-application-final/
I asked them the re-submit the application for the fuel farm grant so that the county receives the state/federal funding through a truthful grant application instead of through the lies they are currently receiving the funds under. Wouldn't it be nice to see the finished product, and know that it was accomplished lawfully? Why would it ever be OK to know the funding was brought about through lies?
