Villages Agree on Boundaries The Village Board of Huntley and the Village Board of Lake in the Hills reached agreement on a long standing border dispute in a joint meeting held last Wednesday evening, January 29. Officials from the villages agreed that Lake in the Hills can annex the proposed 240 acre site, a portion of which will be turned over to the School Board for a proposed school. They further agreed that Huntley has sole annexation rights to two other contiguous properties. A 40 foot right of way was designated along the west edge to allow for future road construction. The villages also agreed to settle which community will supply water and sewer utilities to the school site. If Lake in the Hills provides sewer utilities, Huntley agreed to provided water to the school property. Failure to agree on these issues could have delayed the School Board time schedule.
