On Monday, December 10th, 2012, the Homer Village Board will hold their monthly board meeting. Although statements made at the November 26th meeting indicated a vote on the sale of treated water and sewer services to Sunrise Coal’s proposed mine would take place on the December 10th, currently it is not clear if the contract will be ready for a vote by Monday.
Because there is time on the agenda for updates on the ongoing contract negotiations between the Village and Sunrise Coal (see agenda), supporters are strongly encouraged to attend and speak out against the proposed water and sewer sale.
Homer residents: please take this opportunity to call your Village Board members (217-896-2521) and share with them your concerns about the proposed mine and any sale of water or sewer. We need you to lend your voice in support of protecting our community’s precious resources.
When: Monday, December 10th, 2012 at 7:00 pm
Where: Homer Village Hall, 500 East 2nd Street, Homer, IL
