Huntley, Illinois is appearing in a lot of my google searches lately. I thought I’d offer a post that links to most of the articles I found. All the articles I’ve seen are from the Northwest Herald website. You can find them here, here and here. Though I do believe these links will eventually not work (as I found another article but is inaccessible behind archiving fees) they are informative and include comments from local readers/residents.
One of the commentators in the news paper linked to a forum for Huntley residents. A positive barometer for the Huntley Fire Department. However, indications of a comment left by a member of the Huntley Village Board of Trustees are that if this issue had been put to a vote the sprinkler requirement would no longer exist. The Trustee warns her fellow forum participants that the forum is not enough to get their opinions heard. She’s encouraging participation in board meetings or writing a letter if board meeting attendance is not possible.
Just reading through all the articles and the comments a vote should not be rushed and held anytime soon. The village board doesn’t even seem to be all that informed in the entire matter. That’s dangerous because the ultimate decision will be left up to them by majority vote.
