Pictured left to right are Capt. Kevin Ellison, Kelly and Krzysztof Drozdowski, Firefighter Phil Faustrum and Capt. Keith Mallegni. By Kevin Ellison In keeping with its goals and programs, the Huntley Firefighter Association presented a check in the amount of $500 to Krzysztof and Kelly Drozdowski on Friday, March 21, to aid in their recent misfortune. On March 6, the Drozdowskis of Lake in the Hills suffered extensive fire damage to their home from a house under construction next to their lot which caught fire and bumed. The Drozdowskis are staying with relatives while repairs are made to their home. The Huntley Firefighter Association was formed in 1993. Its membership is comprised of all the firefighting personnel and retires "Honorary" firefighters of the Huntley Fire Protection District. The current officers for 1997 are president, Capt. Kevin Ellison; vice-president. Firefighter Phil Faustrum; sec./treas., Capt. Keith Mallegni. Various goals were established by the association, and of them, the goal to aid the fire district residents in their time of need and tragedy arising from fires was created. To achieve and promote that goal, the "Burn Relief Fund" program evolved. When a homeowner suffers a substantial loss due to a fire and has to be relocated, this money is awarded to aid in those costs incurred due to the temporary inconvenience. It is with sincere wishes that the Huntley Firefighters Association presents this check to the Drozdowskis to assist them in their temporary accommodations and wish them well in the rebuilding of their home.

Q YES 831 a NO 433 By Pete Blanch! The Illinois Commerce Commission will be conducting a regional public forum regarding the proposed additions to Commonwealth Edison's electrical service facihties at the above date, time and location. The proposed electrical upgrade will consist of 12 miles of transmission lines running southeast from Edison's existing facilities at Routes 176 and 47, to a proposed substation site east of Route 47, and north of Reed Road in Huntley. It then continues south and east to a proposed substation site near Algonquin, west of Randall Road and near Kruetzer Road (by the McHenry County line). The lines will be in close proximity to the proposed District 158 school site at the northwest corner of Reed and Haligus Roads. Commonwealth Edison has sought approval of the Illinois Commerce Commission for this project. The Commission is the State agency charged with reviewing proposed regional transmission projects. This public forum is part of the Commission's process. Although Commonwealth Edi¬ son is proposing this project in order to keep up with the demand for electricity in this region, it is prudent to make sure that the routing the the transmission lines is done in a way to minimize the impact to the existing residential properties along the proposed route. To that end, the Village President and Board of Trustees of the Village of Lake in the Hills has formally intervened in this process and requested this additional public forum. The meeting will be held Wednesday, April 9, at 7pm at the Lake in the Hills Elementary School, 519 Willow Street, Lake in the Hills. If you have any questions prior to the forum, please contact Lake in the Hills Trustee Mike Meyer at 847-658- 2160 extension 256.
