In Saturday's paper, we'll have a look at a public health district effort to promote fresh produce, problems with the county board of review and a road project in peril.
The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District is promoting the benefits of fresh fruits and vegetables to its clients again this summer, Debra Pressey writes. Staff members have put the space outside their Champaign headquarters to use by planting 30 raised garden beds full of fruits and vegetables.
No one is saying much right now, but Tom Kacich reports that Champaign County Board members hope to go into closed session next month to review what for now are vague accusations about problems with the county’s board of review.
Kacich also reports that a $1.1 million project to rebuild a deteriorating section of Philo Road in Urbana may be in jeopardy after the discovery of legal opinions that appear to bar the county from participating in its reconstruction. And in another road project, the bridge carrying Kirby Avenue over Interstate 57 in Champaign will be closed for two months while it is repaired.
