Springfield Park District board discusses date for communication tower hearing

During this meeting the corrective grant of easement with Prairie Power Inc. in Gurgens Park was also voted for approval in a unanimous vote.
Minutes from the board’s previous regular meeting on Dec. 17 and from a special meeting regarding taxes on Dec. 10 were reviewed by trustee members and both were approved by a voice vote.
