WEST CITY, IL – (William McPherson, Benton Gazette.  Please click on the link for the full story.)

West City Attorney Ronald Giacone reports that the Village’s proposed Water Tower Project received a favorable ruling recently in Washington D.C. but that there’s still work to be done before the issue is resolved.

The project had been brought to a halt due to a study which found the building permit to be in violation of FAA policy due to its’ proximity to the Benton Municipal Airport. One issue of contention for the Village Board, and for Benton Airport Board members has been the reported number of flights, said to be 22 per day, which allegedly take place at the Benton Airport.
