Election topic of board meeting

SAVANNA – Members of the Savanna Army Depot Restoration Advisory Board elected three community members June 12.

Susan Ertmer of Scales Mound, Judy Fitzpatrick of Mount Carroll, and Helen Kilgore of Elizabeth will join nine other community members serving on the board. In addition to the community members, the RAB board has a representative from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Illinois EPA, and the U.S. Army, totaling 15 members.

RAB is a group of local citizens that meets on a regular basis to discuss environmental restoration of a specific property that is either currently, or was formerly, owned by the Department of Defense, but where DoD oversees the environmental restoration process.

RABs enable people interested in the environmental cleanup at a specific installation to exchange information with representatives of regulatory agencies, the installation, and the community.

In 1995 the Installation was placed on the Base Realignment Closure List, and officially closed as a military installation in March 2000. Now the installation has to be cleaned up and returned to the public. 

For more information, contact Terrence N. Ingram, executive director of the Eagle Nature Foundation, at 300 E. Hickory St., Apple River, IL 61001 or call 815-594-2306.
