A web site called “Save Oakewood Hills” has appeared in response to a petition drive to put a question on the ballot.
TOGETHER WE SHALL VOTE TO SAVE OAKWOOD HILLS
That’s the way the web site begins.
Continuing, these are the subheadlines:
A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO DESTROY YOUR HOMETOWN
GET INVOLVED AND STOP THIS MADNESS
A small group of disgruntled residents are actively collecting signatures to add the question of dissolution to the March ballot and vote it in.
If this is allowed to happen, then our village will cease to exist.
IF this is allowed to happen…..
All assets of the town will be liquidated.
The police department will be disbanded.
Village Hall will be permanently closed.
All of the aspects and resources you have come to love about Oakwood Hills will be gone forever.
Your property value will decrease and insurance will increase due to lack of police presence.
You will be alone, just another unincorporated house in McHenry County.
If you need police help you will be waiting on McHenry County Sheriff’s Dept.
You will have to deal with and go to the county building in Woodstock for everything.
There will be no beaches, parks and trails. The best beach in the state will disappear.
If you do not live directly on Silver Lake, it will be lost to you forever.
All services will be handled by Nunda Township and McHenry County.
That includes all roads and potholes.
If you think waiting for a snowplow is frustrating now…. You will be waiting in a long line for a Nunda Township truck to come. What will the condition of the roads in the “hills” be like after several inches of fallen snow…or worse, are covered in ice?
Don’t think that this can’t happen?
It is a relatively easy matter in Illinois to get this measure on a ballot, and it only takes a simple majority vote to kill all that we have come to be in this community.
VOTE NO to DISSOLUTION of the VILLAGE OF OAKWOOD HILLS!
