JACKSONVILLE, Ill. -- It’s round two with another public hearing on the proposed closure of the Jacksonville Developmental Center being held today — just the latest in what has been a six-month process aimed at closing the facility.
The Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability will convene the hearing at 5 p.m. in the Illinois College Bruner Fitness Center.
There, the commission will ask questions of members of the Department of Human Services and the Governor’s office and hear testimony from politicians, advocacy groups and members of the public.
