SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 ®lie IHuntlep jfarmsJibt HUNTLEY, ILLINOIS THURSDAY, JANUARY 30, 1992 - VOLUME 31, NUMBER 41 USPS 580-360 LEAC II Plans Action, Raises Funds New Police Department Entrance Now Open By Tracey Schwartz In anticipation of a balefiU petition to be filed by Lake In The Hills next month, the Landfill Emergency Action Committee II (LEAC II) is focusing on setting up its plan of action and raising funds to carry it out. After LITH annexed the Veugler property 2 miles north of Huntley on Rt. 47, local government of^cials and citizens organized LEAC II to fight any efforts to put a balefill on this property. This is the second time in ten years Huntley residents have fought against a landfill proposal for this location. In 1985 the Landfill Emergency Action Committee (LEAC ij first organized and successfully blocked the landfill from becoming a reality. LEAC II directors iijclude: Richard Hansen, LEAC II President, Grafton Township Board President, Head of Solvent Systems, an environmental testing and recycling company; Chuck Veach, LEAC II Secretary, Grafton Township Planning Commission Chairman; Bill Young, LEAC II Treasurer, Village of Lakewood Board Trustee; Dan Ziller, Girafton Township Board Trustee; Jim Dhamer, Village of Huntley President; Alan Hamilton of Hamilton Farms; and Chuck Ruth, Former Grafton Township Supervisor, Owner of Alliance Contractors. LEAC II, a non-profit organization, is gearing up for an expensive fight. According to sources the committee will probably need to raise $100,000.00. LEAC n has set up a bank account at the State Bank of Huntley to receive donations. Interested parties can contact LEAC II directors by calling 708/669-3328 or writing to Landfill Emergency Action Committee II, PO Box 625, Huntley, Illinois 60142.
