>Signs in favor of creation of a Kishwaukee Valley Water Authority in the western part of McHenry Count keep getting torn down, as you can see from the email below from a friend of McHenry County Blog:
Just to up date our report to you on the KVWA signs being taken. I just spoke with a neighbor.
Her daughter put out about 20 signs yesterday along Garden Valley Road and that general area.
An hour later they were all gone!
I forgot to ask if the mysterious “wind” had replaced them with blue and white Vote No signs.
I continue to get reports similar to this in many of the areas of the proposed KVWA area.
It seems a pretty low type of trick to me. The water authority idea must really be making a few deep-pocketed people nervous.
In a counter attack of sorts, proponents have put signs up in Crystal Lake on Routes 14 and 176.
I almost got a new, larger one designed to compete with the 4 by 8-foot signs of the Taxpayers Alliance of Northern Illinois.
Unfortunately, a Tweeter closing poster holder was standing in front of part of it.
This corner, by the way, is a location that former McHenry County College President Jim Davis told me that a citizens’ committee recommended the college be located. Davis told me it was a peat bog.
