Governor announces release of $48,000 to City of Oakbrook Terrace
Funds to be used to offset the cost of water system expansion

CHICAGO – Governor Rod R. Blagojevich today authorized the release of $48,000 to the City of Oakbrook Terrace for costs related to an expansion of the city’s water system. This is the final installment on a $500,000 grant for this project.
“The people of Illinois have the right to expect their state and local governments to provide the necessary resources for projects that are important to their health and quality of life, such as a safe and reliable source of water,” said Governor Blagojevich.
In 1999 the City of Oakbrook Terrace installed a complete water system for its residents.  However, adjacent to the city is an unincorporated area where the residents relied on well water whose quality had become unacceptable.  The city is using state funds to cover part of the cost of adding 145 homes to the water system, reducing the connection fee for the individual homeowners.
“I want to thank the Governor for approving these funds and allowing this project to move forward,” said State Representative Bob Biggins, the current legislative sponsor for this project.
