Wind farm developer repairing Ford-Iroquois County roads

The wind farm company—E.On Climate & Renewables --- is making repairs to county and township roads in Ford and Iroquois Counties.

And observers say when completed, the roads will be among the best routes in either county.

The repairs are part of the road-use agreements the county boards and  developer hammered out when the projects were first negotiated.

Pioneer Trail Wind Farm near Paxton is making good progress on its contract to repair the 35 miles of township and county roads used to build the 94-turbine wind farm last fall. The repairs are at E.On’s expense.

Oil and chipping may be done this week.  If weather cooperates, Ford County Highway Engineer Greg Perkinson said the roads should be completed by the end of June.

STATE REP. LISA DUGAN NAMED LEGISLATOR OF THE YEAR BY ILLINOIS STATE AMBULANCE ASSOCIATION

SPRINGFIELD, IL– As recognition for her years of support and advocacy, State Rep. Lisa Dugan (D-Bradley) was named legislator of the year by the Illinois State Ambulance Association during a luncheon in Springfield on Wednesday

“Emergency Medical Service (EMS) providers are an invaluable resource to our communities,” said Dugan. “I have proudly worked with my colleagues to find better ways to support and enhance the services they provide across the state and especially in rural communities. I am honored to be recognized with this award.” 

Dugan received the award from Illinois State Ambulance Association (ISAA) for her ongoing support and dedication to EMS providers and the industry.

Last year, Dugan sponsored legislation creating the House Task Force on EMS funding to find ways that the General Assembly and the State could make its emergency medical services work more efficiently.  The committee held hearings around the state to solicit information and advice from EMS personnel and constituents on issues facing their communities related to emergency service needs.

“State Representative Dugan has been a great advocate for our industry and we sincerely appreciate her dedication and support,” said Kim Godden, ISAA Board Member.
