On june 27, the second sanitary District sludge hearing had to be moved to the Sheraton Chicago hotel ballroom because District Headquarters were not Large enough to accommodate the 500 South Cook county citizens that attended. The meeting which again lasted most of the Day represented the first time any sanitary District meeting had been forced out of its Board room at too East Erie Street. Highlight of the raucous meeting was galas revelation that the archdiocese of Chicago owner of 800 of the 2,100 acres sought by the District near Tinley Park did not intend to sell any of its land and would fight the District in the courts in any condemnation action. More than 30 other speakers grouped to the podium representing everything from local Village boards to local schools. For the first time a local Victory seemed possible. A a a the next Day trustee Janicki held a news conference in which he claimed he a had the votes to abandon the proposals and that his motion to rescind the plans would be victorious at the districts july la meeting. A however the Board voted july la instead to table Jaruckis s motion to rescind. The action was apparently taken to leave the District an outlet for sludge disposal in Case the state legislature meeting in special session for two weeks did not restore the districts Power to condemn lands downstate. The spotlight then shifted to Springfield where Park Forest state representative Anthony Scariano d-8th presented his Bill for sanitary District authority downstate on july 15. The Bill however did not get enough support to get second Reading. A Scariano a Bill was then sent to the municipalities committee of the House where Scariano hoped a favourable report on the Bill would be voted. He based his Hopes on expected testimony from sanitary District officials in Springfield last week. A a a however none of the officials showed up for the committee hearings monday because they were apparently fearful of offending downstairs whose support was needed for the sanitary districts request of a $15 million Bond Issue approval. A an enraged Scariano threatened to a blast the sanitary District for its duplicity and political hypocrisy when he heard the officials weren to coming to the committee hearing. A sensing a squeeze t h e District apparently gave in. Scariano was privately assured that abandonment of the sludge farms would be forthcoming if he would forego his threatened attack. A a real estate committee meeting on tuesday at the sanitary District was the scene of the big shift. By an 8 to i margin the trustees voted to unable the Issue and to take a final vote on thursday. A a a the vote headed the Agenda thursday and the e sludge fight was All Over in about to minutes. Such was the Story from the local viewpoint. Adding to the pressure on the sanitary District was the recent protest movement. Much like the one mounted in South Cook county. By citizens in Northwest Cook county. The sanitary District also planned sludge farms near Schaumberg and Hanover Park where a Small experimental farm already operates. Undoubtedly officials from these areas joined Scariano in applying the political pressure that evidently changed the districts mind.
