Nov. 24 Winnebago County Board briefs
By Stuart R. Wahlin
Winnebago County Board members authorized Nov. 24 the issuance of collateralized single-family mortgage revenue bonds as part of the county’s low-to-moderate-income homebuyer program.
The board approved up to $30,000 as continued funding for the Illinois State’s Attorneys Appellate Prosecutor (ILSAAP) program in the county for the 2010 fiscal year. Appellate prosecutors are assigned to cases in which the state’s attorney’s office may have a conflict of interest.
Board members also approved a resolution to declare support of a regional policy among county municipalities to collaborate for a unified vision regarding economic development, such as when incentives should be offered.
A vacancy was declared for the seat of Randy Olson (R-1), who resigned to accept a job as the Law Enforcement Aviation Coalition’s (LEAC) chief pilot—a county position (read “Comings and goings on county board”).
Former Winnebago County Recorder Ken Staaf (D) donated two paintings of Abraham Lincoln and one of the county’s old courthouse for display in county buildings. The art, painted by Staaf, was previously displayed in the recorder’s office before his retirement.
