They presented their Plat of Survey to the Trustees and the amendment to the zoning of the property. The Zoning Commission had recommended that the property located at West and South of Algonquin Road in Huntley as petitioned be rezoned from R2 to Rl.

President Dhamer called Ken Bakley to the table. Mr. Bakley was before the Board asing that a recapture agreement be given on his 200 feet of sanitary sewer to Ruth Road. He gave a summary of this request, noting $3200 was cost of same. Attorney Kukla advised that Mr. Bakley needed to have his attorney draft a recapture agreement and bring same back to Board for approval, but that he needed some indication from the Board before doing same. The Sewer and Water Committee recommended the Board give this indication and Attorney Kukla will get with his attorney. There being no public comments, the meeting continued. Continued on page 12 For the seventh straight year the Huntley Fire Protection District will be involved in a state wide campaign to alert residents concerning fires caused by holiday decorations. The project is called, "KEEP THE WREATH RED." As in previous years a large wreath has been put up in the window in front of Station #1 on Coral Street. The red lights on the wreath will be constantly lit. If there is a fire in the district caused directly by holiday decorations a bulb on the wreath will be changed to white. During the last six years the lights on the wreath have remained red throughout the holiday season. The fire district asks that all residents please continue to be fire safety minded again this year and "Keep The Wreath Red." Make sure Christmas trees are fresh and kept away from any type of heat and that they are checked often for water in the tree stand. Make sure all lights are UL tested and check all lights and cords to insure they are in good condition. Never use inside lights for outside use as they are not made to withstand the weather. Keep children and pets away from electrical cords around the Christmas tree and other lighted decorations. Be very careful when you're smoking, or others are smoking, around Christmas decorations. Gift wrapping should never be discarded in the fireplace. House Bill 3, signed into law by Governor Thompson, required all dwellings to have smoke detectors installed by July 1, 1988. When looking for a gift this year, think about choosing a smoke detector and fire extinguisher. "Smoke Detectors Save Lives" and what better gift to give to someone you care about. The Christmas holiday season is a time of joy. Don't let this time be saddened by not taking proper care of Christmas trees and decorations. The Huntley Fire Protection District wishes all of you a happy and "safe" holiday season.
