WALBRIDGE - A request to rezone the former elementary school in the village has been rejected by the planning commission and is headed to council for review.
At Wednesday's meeting, planning commission chairwoman Breanna Hernandez said the request to rezone from residential R1-4 to commercial-3, for the proposed use of an event hall, was vetoed by members on June 26.
Anything could go in that building, including a grocery store, if it was zoned C-3, Hernandez said after the council meeting.
"There's other levels of the commercial district and he chose the highest one," she said of the owner.
Mayor Ed Kolanko said several residents attended the June 26 hearing and spoke against the proposed zoning change.
"There were a few concerned residents regarding traffic, regarding noise, regarding potential trash," he said.

Latta tries to cut red tape for local vets PDF Print E-mail

Wood County veterans have to wait months for medical appointments and years, even decades, when they apply or appeal to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
The agency has been under a microscope in the months following a national scandal that started at the VA in Phoenix, where top officials are accused of skewing reports and manipulating wait times to hide the agency's failures, which include a nationwide backlog of hundreds of thousands of applications.
U.S. Rep. Bob Latta, R-Bowling Green, has been one of those pointing a magnifying glass toward the agency responsible for coordinating the care of armed forces veterans. After conducting three town hall meetings within his district in May, Latta said he heard of both successes and difficulties working within the VA's framework for applications and appeals.
"These are the folks who laid their lives on the line for us, and we want to make sure we're doing everything possible to take care of them. And a lot of it's bureaucratic red tape they're trying to get through," Latta said in an interview with the Sentinel-Tribune.
"It's really sloppy work that they're doing trying to get this case load reduced."
House investigative hearings into the matter have shown that "on the top tier, there's a real dysfunction" in the VA, Latta said.
Latta said former VA Secretary Eric Shinseki, who resigned in the wake of the controversy, did not believe he had the authority to remove top officials. Latta maintains that Shinseki could have done so, but to emphasize the fact as a replacement is chosen, the House passed a bill explicitly outlining the secretary's ability to terminate those who perform poorly or contributed to the agency's dysfunction.
