Solar farm plan nixed


MONTICELLO, Ill. (WCIA) — There won’t be a solar farm coming to Monticello. The plan was for it to go near the middle school.

The project was rejected by the city council back in June, but was later passed after modified plans moved it away from homes. But it would have meant the baseball and soccer fields would have to move.

The school board didn’t take it up for a vote.
