Grafton Board Asks More Than Asking Price For Offices Site
Supervisor Linda Moore and Trustees refused to reveal the price offered for the plot of land bought for $100,000 three years ago from the Village of Lake in the Hills. Nor would they say who had made the offer or for what purpose. Moore and trustees said they didn't know if the Illinois Open Meetings Act would allow them to do that (it does) and they had no lawyer to consult on the matter. Grafton Township has been without a Township Attorney for a year now since Moore fired law firm Ancel-Glink.
The who and why is already an open secret since the LITH-based American Muslim Community Organization has already confirmed to FEN that it wants to build a mosque and community center at the Haligus site.
The Board hired Crystal Lake lawyer Michael Torchalski to handle the possible sale of the property but they withheld details about that, too.
In the pic: Grafton Township's erstwhile office site may become a new Field of Dreams.
