In compliance with Governor JB Pritzker's orders, the DeWitt County Board in conjunction with Clinton Schools has postponed the March 18 Tradewind Energy special use permit vote.
Thursday night, the Governor requested any events that would draw over 250 people be curtailed so DeWitt County Board Chair David Newberg says that is exactly what they will do. He says the health and well being of County residents and anyone that wants to attend is above any issue at hand.
The coronavirus outbreak has yet to reach DeWitt County but to slow the spread, events of all types are being postponed across the country. Newberg was pleased to oblige with the request of the school district to not host their meeting in their facility during this time.
Newberg calls this the smart thing to do and indicates they are not sure where or when this vote will take place.
As of now, the monthly DeWitt County Board meeting for Thursday night is still on as scheduled.
The rescheduled vote will be heard on WHOW and its many online platforms including dewittdailynews.com, the WHOW mobile app, and Amazon Alexa.
