The Kendall County Board on Tuesday tabled the petition from Brighter Daze Farm Banquet Hall because of septic compliance at its facility at 10978 Crimmin Rd. in Newark.

Brighter Daze's owners want to host events throughout the year and also host smaller events.  Currently, only 30 events per year can be held at the facility, and the barn doors must be closed by 11:00 p.m.  The Special Use Permit also limits Brighter Daze to weekend operation only.

At Tuesday's regular meeting, county board members voted eight to one to send the Special Use Permit changes back to the Planning, Building and Zoning Committee.  Dan Koukol voted "no."

Boyd Ingemunson is the attorney for Brighter Daze petitioner JoAnn Bright Theis, and Ingemunson says a permit for the septic work was issued by the Kendall County Health Dept. last July.

County Board members Brian DeBolt, Koukol, and Ruben Rodriguez wanted to move forward with the changes to the Special Use Permit, but board member Matt Kellogg disagreed.

Kellogg then asked State's Attorney Eric Weis about septic compliance at Brighter Daze.

The board then voted to send the petition back to the Planning, Building and Zoning Committee.  That committee's next meeting is Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Oswego Township Office at 99 Boulder Hill Pass in Boulder Hill.
