Ford-Iroquois Health Board members ousted >

Two new appointees to the Ford-Iroquois Dept of Public Health have been approved by the Iroquois County Board.

At a special meeting this morning…..the Board voted 13-2 to remove three members of the health board. And Board Chairman Rod Copas then named Lauren LukE  and Michelle Fairley to serve two of the three seats for Iroquois County.

The County Board heard more details about an investigation by an Edgar County Watchdog group. Following an executive session, the votes to remove and replace were carried out.

The Ford-Iroquois Health Board had a regular meeting scheduled late this (Mon) morning in Gilman. But the meeting was postponed when it was learned the meeting had not been properly, according to the Open Meetings Act.

John Kraft, from the Edgar County Watchdog Group, questioned the health board members if the meeting and agenda had been posted at the Gilman-Danforth Library Building ?

The newly-appointed Iroquois County members of the health board and County board chairman Copus were not present at the meeting.
