Village Expands To New Facilities By Cathy DeQuaker & Tracey Schwartz The Village of Huntley will be expanding its working quarters with its recent $175,000 purchase of the old Wabash-DataTech building on east Main Street in Huntley. The village acquired the property by auction through local realtor Tom Jurs with RE/MAX Tri-County Realtors. The 4,500 square foot building will house the Huntley Police Department, a new board meeting room and additional office space for either the Huntley Area Chamber of Commerce and Industry or possible future use of the village's administrative department. According to Huntley Police Chief Rick Rossi, the new police station will feature three temporary holding rooms, a shift commander's room, squad room for the officers and handicapped-accessible washrooms. Rossi emphasized the taxpayer benefits from the purchase including the reduced purchase-price from the original listing of $269,000 and the larger, ground-level board meeting room for easier public attendance. The new board room in which all village meetings will be held, will now meet the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) requirements for public access. The current village board room does not meet the ADA requirements. Huntley Village President Jim Dhamer emphatically stated the village has no intention of abandoning the existing village hall located on the town square. The village's administration and building inspection departments will remain in the current village hall building. Building Commissioner Butch Ehrke's Jurs and Dhamer ceremoniously knockfd down the For Sale sign at the building on east Main purchased by the village of Huntley. department will move into the existing police department's quarters.
