Dixon Evening Telegraph (Newspaper) - April 3, 1965, Dixon, Illinois Funeral Home dial 283-8381 202 e. Fellows st. Dixon Illinois Dixon evening Telegraph serving the heart of Rock River Valley Tor More than a Century saturday april 3, 1965voice about town dear f hit or the let county building commission As formed for one purpose Only to construct a new Law enforcement building jail and it Isi no Frankenstein and there a s been no mystery of silence a bout it. The Dinon evening Telegraph has carried excellent articles about the for Many months during Whiddo it was discussed and acted in on by the Lee county Board during this Long period there we to no comments by the farm Bureau. Just Bat is the Lee county building commission it will be a group Ltd of men whom you know Well some will be of the banking profession some of the building pro. Fission real estate Etc. Som f May be members of the Lee county farm Bureau All men you know and Respert and Are responsible citizens of the com Unity. The county As being the forming Bod j will appoint five men and the City of Dixon will be represented the Dixon school District. Dixon Park District 1 and the Dixon Rural fire District. They will each appoint on member. These a members serve without pay and Are appointed for staggered terms of one to five years. They will meet elect one of their members chairman one Secretary and organize As a body. Tiv a will make a Survey As to the needs location size numb to i of cells Etc., for a Lee county jail. Then after a thorough study draw plans for constructs fat a financing maintenance it f. All these items a in the u use which they enter into with Lee county subject to approx Al by the Board in every detail. A it or the lease is approved her the Hoard the commission t an sell Revenue Bonds to Fin Anere the construction maintenance of nation costs Etc. This imms not involve the county general Pund. In Pei a county such Bonds sold at 3? i per cent Stephenson county Tutti by sold at 3 58 per cent. The eff May not run Over 20 years. This. Is the method of financing u rider which most Public buildings Are constructed. After the building is completed and the Bonds Are retired the building reverts Back to the county. A t this Point the building Cymru Mission May be Dis banded i nereid a failure of the Chain Nan to appoint members. As a mum bar of the Lee county farm Bureau. I think a vote of thanks is due to the Lee county Board of supervisors for their Gene Rous donation of $5,000 to the hoi me Extension service an affiliate of the Lee county farm Bui Pau. Carl e. Spangler a wember of the Lee county farm Bureau Brief summary of the arguments presented to me when i asked several supervisors about this matter. May i suggest that you tax a payers ask your supervisor s for a a full explanation of the situation a and for the reasons he voted As j he did. If you agree with his a j Tion Tell hint so. If you Don t i agree with him Tell him that tool maybe you could persuade him to change his vote if enough of Sou feel strongly enough about this a in Unity there is strength Quot j this writer feels that having a new jail is not the Issue Here at All but whether the end justifies j the Means. In other words regardless of the worthiness of the i objective Why Are not the people Given a Chance to approve or to disapprove this major expend Ture if. As Many of us believe the need is evident and obvious will not the voters if properly educated and approached do i what is Best for the county this would be in line with the Prin Peiples of a democracy. Have we a indeed lost our votes i wonder if the people in the Dixon school District for example Are aware of the implications Here. I understand they Hae voted Down four Bond is-1 sues in succession without commenting on the worthiness of those lion issues. I would it Point out that if this building commission is allowed to exist As planned the Dixon school District 1 voters wont have a Chance to i turn Down any More Bond issues the building commission will be empowered to go ahead spend the Money and Send the Bill to the taxpayers. If you Are pleased with the actions of your supervisor after having heard him explain his views on the building commission and any other pertinent Issue support him with your voice and your vote. If you would rather vote for someone else Why not organize a Strong write in Campaign for someone you can this presupposes that j those now is office Are campaigning again and Are mostly unopposed As is often the Case if enough voters speak on april 6th and the town meeting is also a Fine place to speak in addition to the voting let Oththo Board of supervisors might on april 8 their next scheduled meeting Date rescind their action setting up that building commission May i add that i am not necessarily opposed to the members of the Board of supervisors not am i flatly advocating their ouster. The Road has made Many commendable decisions in recent years and contains a number of worthy members. But at last on april 6th the people still have a Chance to speak their views and to vote As they wish a if a person will not use his Freedom to defend his Freedom he does not deserve his sincerely Edwin moms \ Lee county tax Quot payer i Harmon 111 dear editor most of the area citizens Are surely aware that on feb. 11, 1965, the Lee county Board of supervisors passed a Resolution organizing a Public building commission. Those voting a a Aye were supervisors Klingebiel Herbst Miller Baiser Finch. Naylor Curran Wilson. Spangler Dunn Hoyle. Faivre currens Sheaffer Allen. Dieterle. Roemmich. Koch Erickson. And Florschuetz. Those supervisors who voted a nay Quot were Barnes. Cross Archer Kranov Ilas Selberg Dunphy and Hollenbeck. Those in favor of this step seemed to believe that this county needs a new jail and that a voter referendum for a Bond Issue would be costly and a frankly would not pass and this. Then was the Only Way left to acquire a new jail. Those supervisors opposed to this Resolution were mostly of the opinion that spending $200.000.00 plus interest for 20 years of the taxpayers Money in one big chunk . The commitment on i the jail even if actually paid for Over a 20-year period should Only i lie done with v oter approval.
