TILTON, IL. (ECWd) -
Here are some additional questions on the "free land" the County of Vermilion has planned on "giving" to the person who bought adjacent land (which we still believe is illegal).
What happens with the sanitary sewer treatment plant?
Is it part of the "old buildings and junk?" LOL.
If the sanitary sewer treatment plant is sold/given to the farmer, does he know how to decommission it properly?
Does the buyer know anything about it? Will the buyer take care of it and keep it from becoming a hazard?
If Vermilion County keeps the sanitary sewer treatment plant, what are we going to do with that liability?
These are some questions you could be asking. It could be very sensitive stuff. Somebody might get the shaft and be stuck with a bad deal.
Did the county board approve the "give" away of the extra acreage?
Did they get the full minimum bid asking price for the tillable portion of the property on the north side of the road?
