Governor awards $100,000 to the Village of LaGrange Park
Funds to be used for sewer system improvements

CHICAGO – Governor Rod R. Blagojevich today awarded a $100,132 grant to the Village of LaGrange Park for construction of the East Side Relief Sewer.  The funds are part of a $300,000 grant for the project, which has a remaining balance of $5,840.
 
“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 dependable sewer systems,” said Governor Blagojevich.
 
The area of the village that lies on the east side of LaGrange Road has been prone to flooding problems.  The East Side Relief Sewer is designed to alleviate the flooding problem.
 
“I want to thank the Governor for providing these funds for this project that will alleviate a problem that has plagued the east side of LaGrange for quite some time,” said State Representative Robert Molaro who represents the area. The project was originated by former State Representative Bill O’Connor.
