Bond County Animal Control

In a special meeting this week the Bond County Board voted unanimously to hire Jim Hess to fill the county animal control position. The hiring is effective immediately with a contract still to be worked out between Hess, the board, and State’s Attorney Chris Bauer.

Several residents attended the meeting to discuss the possible closing of the Dorris Creek Railroad Crossing in Bond County. The board unanimously approved a resolution asking the Illinois Commerce Commission that the crossing remain open.
