100 Year Old Will County Resident Fears Losing His Farm to Eminent Domain for the "Peotone Airport"
100 year-old Will County resident Anthony Rudis fears the State of Illinois may use eminent domain to gain ownership of his farm in the footprint of the proposed "Peotone Airport". Recently, owners of land in the footprint have received letters from state contractors stating engineers and other officials need access to their land in order to conduct appraisals.
"This land is not for sale. I do not want them on my property and will do what I can to stop them. This is terribly upsetting." said Mr. Rudis. "The FAA has not approved the project," Rudis continued, "and they have no business moving forward, wasting taxpayers money."
