For such a nice guy, Mr. Terstegge sure seems to have a lot of people interested in his life and scrutinizing his every move. Seems like people who have no involvement in this and little if any direct knowledge of the issue would be better served by minding their own business.

Adams Co. Board puts concealed carry question on Nov. ballot

2 years, 10 months ago by Jamie Busen

Non-binding resolution will just ask voters if they believe the Legislature should enact concealed carry

Adams County voters in November will see a concealed carry question on their ballots.

The Adams County Board Tuesday night voted on a resolution to send the issue to the voters. If it passes, the advisory referendum would be forwarded to state officials.

The question posed to voters is this:  “Should the State Legislature enact legislation to allow trained and licensed law abiding citizens to carry firearms for lawful uses?"

States Attorney Jon Barnard said people need to understand that even if it passes, "you still can't carry a concealed weapon in the state of Illinois. Only the state Legislature can change that. This is simply letting them know what we wish for."

The Board also learned from Finance Committee Chair John Johnson that six months into the County's fiscal year, the Board "probably won't need to initiate the loan for the general fund," though Johnson said "we may still need to do that depending on other cash flows for the ambulance fund."

At last month's Board meeting, members approved taking out a $1 million line of credit to cover shortfalls. Johnson said they received two shares of income taxes last month, meaning the state is now only a little over three months behind in payments.

"We weren't expecting that," he said. "... and through the last four months, our sales tax shares are up six percent. We hope that continues - it will make cash flows a whole lot better in the future months."

Johnson said that budget planning by the finance committee will be starting in a few weeks; they’ll look at their expected revenues after six months and be able to make better projections.

The Board also heard a report from Johnson about the business and medical insurance. Requests for proposals are being sought from medical providers for the policy year that starts September 1.

In other action the Board passed the annual prevailing rage resolution, gave the OK for several additional fund appropriations for the coroner and sheriff, approved the appointment of Richard W. Flesner as Trustee of the Golden Fire Protection District and approved the reappointment of Gary G. Cantrell as Trustee of the Clayton Fire Protection District.
