City Gives Final Ok To Annexation

 Members of the Fairbury City Council gave their final stamp of approval Tuesday to a measure that would annex northern contiguous areas into the corporate city limits.
 On a unanimous vote city leaders approved a measure that would annex Countryside Vet Clinic, Scherbarth Ace Hardware, The Farmer's Coop, The Fairbury Rural Fire Department, land owned by Northgate Development and a vacant building owned by Lloyd Garber into the city.
 Prior to the vote Dr. Larry Winter spoke to the council saying he would not fight the annexation project but wondered what the reasoning was for it.
 "Do you need the money? Have you dug a hole and need to get out of it?" he asked. "I talked to Scherbarth's and Coop and none of us requested to be annexed, I just want to know why."

Businessman Goes On Rant

A Fairbury businessman went on a nearly five minute tirade at Tuesday’s city council meeting. Lloyd Garber accused either or both members of the Fairbury City Council and Journal-News publisher Fred Arnold as “having it out for him.”
Garber, who is owner of a building along the north edge of Fairbury that is in the proposed annexation area, says the building was referred to in the paper as the former Massey Ferguson building. “Massey Ferguson don’t pay one bit of taxes on that building,” Garber said. “I don’t know whether it’s the City or Fred Arnold, but I have a burr that you don’t mention Garber’s Honda.”
The building in question, which has no signage, has been vacant for over a decade and was last used by and is most widely known as the former Massey Ferguson implement dealership.
