A special meeting of the Lemont Village Board has been called for this Monday, January 6, 2014, at 7 PM at the village hall, 418 Main St. The primary agenda item is a vote to repeal the ordinance for alternate revenue bonds to pay for a $21 million sports complex. By killing this ordinance, the mayor and board will prevent citizens from having a vote on whether to pledge their taxes to pay for the project. This will pave the way for the Reaves administration to use village revenues, including sales and income taxes to guarantee a private $21 million loan. Audience participation will be on the agenda, so residents with comments or opinions about the project or the referendum vote should feel obliged to testify. You will not be alone, and this may be your last chance to voice your concerns.
