SPRINGFIELD -- Governor George H. Ryan announced today that he is releasing $297,000 in Illinois FIRST funding for projects in Northwestern Cook County, including $120,000 to the Hoffman Estates Park District for repairs and renovations at High Point Park.

Other Illinois FIRST projects announced by Ryan:

  • $107,000 to the Alfred Campanelli YMCA in Schaumburg to purchase equipment and furniture for the YMCA's new day care center. Kitchen equipment and close-circuit TV security system will be bought.

  • $50,000 to the Village of Mount Prospect to install video cameras in all of the village's police cars.

  • $20,000 to the Elk Grove Rural Fire Department to purchase 25 sets of fireproof "turn-out" coats and pants for firefighters.
