FOX WATERWAY AGENCY NEWS

Senator Link has withdrawn his bill to dissolve the Fox Waterway Agency, most likely due to the tremendous opposition!  He can reintroduce this bill in the future so watch for updates.

Representative David McSweeney (R) 52nd District has filed a resolution, HR0934, opposing Bill #SB 2696.  Click here for his bill status.  This is a resolution WE WANT TO BE A PROPONENT FOR!

SPRING FLOODING

Experts are predicting spring flooding again this year.  The Village of Holiday Hills is working closely with Nunda Township Highway Department and McHenry County Emergency Management Agency.  If you typically flood, now is the time to contact friends and relatives to help with sandbagging.  Preparedness is key!

We are closely monitoring water levels and will provide sandbags at strategic locations for pick up when deemed necessary to do so.  Please watch our website and our bulletin board for locations of sandbags for pick-up.  Sandbags will not be delivered to homes at this time.  Watch for updates and please see the attached links.
