'BT'^ HUNTLEY ^«*»«'rf« VOLUME 11 — NUMBER 6 THURSDAY, MAY 14, 1970 — PHONE — •69-S6t] II No Aatwer 4SMfM ^' 1 6 PAGES "BE SURE YOU ARE RIGHT, THEN GO AHEAD" David Crockett 7 oentt per cap; Village Board Meeting The regular meeting of the Huntley Village Board was held on Thursday, May 7th, 1970, in the boardroom of the Village Hall. Trustees Ackman, Enstrom, Olhaber, O'Connor, Fitzi, Clerk Enstrom, Mayor Brill and at¬ torney Caldwell present. Trustee Staab absent. At the beginning of the meeting, Trustee Ackman turned in his resi¬ gnation to the board. The board accepted his resignation, however, did not appoint anyone to fill the vacancy. Mr. Jackish, who is interested in constructing a golf course to be an¬ nexed to the town between the Al¬ gonquin Blacktop and Reed Rd., was present at the meeting. He was accompanied by his lawyer, Mr. Zu¬ kowski and the engineer for the golf course, Mr. Scheflow. There were many citizens of Huntley also pre¬ sent at the meeting to object to the construction of multi-unit dwellings along the Algonquin Blacktop near Bakley's 4th addition. Some of the people objected to the fact that the departments oould have-as many as 8 flats, which in their opinion, wpuld diminish the value of the beauti&l homes existing in Bakley's 4th addithMi. -Others stated that it would not aid the school problem in that additional- schools would have to be built to accomodate the chil¬ dren living in the single family homes, duplexes and multi-family dwellings. Mr. Jackish stated that only a small portion of the 160 acres would be used for multiple family dwellings. He stated that the major¬ ity of the homes built along the Al¬ gonquin Blacktop & Reed Rd. would be zoned Rl, for single family use. Attorney Caldwell said that multi- family dwellings furnished more taxes for the area than single family units. He added that the over-all effect would be good for the Huntley area as sales tax would increase and more money would be coming into the town. Mr. Jackish who has stated that he will not construct the homes, said that the builders would have to follow the guide lines of the sub¬ division ordinance. He added that he planned to live in one of the houses to be built on the golf course, stating that the construction of these homes would not be cheap cracker boxes. Mr. Jackish said that the rea¬ son the multi-dwelling and duplex housings would be located on the Algonquin Blacktop near the Bakley subdivision was because of the avail- ibility of city sewer and water re¬ quired by the zoning ordinance for such homes. The homes along Reed Road would use well and septic sys¬ tems. It was brought out by many of the objectors that the sewer along Church Street was not adequate to handle the present needs of that sub¬ division. They stated that in heavy rains and other times, the present sewer backed up, flooding their base¬ ments. The addition of multi-dwell¬ ings units would be an intolerable over-load for the Church St. sewer and the residents of the subdivision. Mr. Scheflow stated that he had not been made aware of the sewer prob¬ lem in the subdivision in prior meet¬ ings with the village board. He said builders would have to bring the sewer down to the existing sewer at their own expense.

WILPAULT BRILL, Mayor Miss Christine Bjom, Poppy Day Chairman for Unit 673, American Legion Auxiliary, is directing the activities of Poppy Day. The Unit President is Mrs. Mabel Schultz. Jr-Sr Prom Poppy Day Once again. Poppy Day, is here. Once again, we, the living, are re¬ minded that we are enjoying the freedoms and the opportunities of life in these United States because of the sacrifices of the men who died, and the men who are still hos¬ pitalized to guarantee us these free¬ doms. In return they ask that we respond to the needs of the disabled Veteran and his family and the fam¬ ilies of the deceased by contributing generously on Poppy Day. What is the poppy? Where does it come from. "In Flanders Fields the poppies blow — Between the crosses, row on row— That mark our place" — That is the origion of the Poppy. There is another line in the poem — "If ye break faith with us who die, we shall not sleep —" Let us not break faith with our Veterans. Lei us give, and give as much as w? can. For it is a small price to pay for the life we enjoy. Commander Jack Goehl also re¬ minds us that in these turbulent times the wearing of the Poppy is an expression of our faith in our country, as well as an expression of Thanks to the Veterans and their families. GIVE GENEROUSLY Baseball Notice BASEBALL PRACTICE — There will be baseball practice for boys 13 through 16 Tuesday, May 26th at the High School diamond.
