Mike Combest and I asked our fellow council members this past Monday for their approval to move from a position of learning and potential supporting of the Idols Industrial Park to one of actively advocating and working for a more profitable, productive use of that area. This recommendation came after a series of meetings with County staff, Village staff and multiple county commissioners.
Council directed staff to craft a resolution that would represent to the County Commissioners that we do not support an industrial park at that location. Mike and I also hope to present on information we have uncovered and the timeline of events so that our community fully understands what has led us to this conclusion and course of action. Look for that on the June 25th agenda.
In the meantime, we are scheduling time with county commissioners who were not previously approached regarding this issue to make sure they have a full understanding of our position.
