DECATUR, IL -(Effingham Radio)- Howard Buffett is once again stepping-up for the Decatur area.
The Macon County Board last week approved a plan to accept a million-dollar donation from Buffett’s private foundation to help build a recycling center.
Buffett’s money will buy the land, the state of Illinois will pay for the rest.
Buffett is the son of Warren Buffett, and is one of Decatur’s greatest philanthropists.
He is also the county’s sheriff.
