Co. Executive Walsh credits compromise for Will County's accomplishments

In his 11th-annual State of the County address Thursday, Will County Executive Larry Walsh said the key to the county's success has been compromise and cooperation.

As he highlighted the "significant accomplishments" of the past year and the "exciting work" that lies ahead, Walsh stressed, "When we work together we can achieve great things."

The third-term Democratic leader has worked with a Republican-majority board on a $275 million effort to replace aging county facilities and, "despite challenges," has partnered with state and federal agencies on road work and expanded services to residents.

U.S. House grants longer use of Will County landfill

Author: Editor

A bill that would allow Will County to continue to use the Prairie View Landfill in Florence Township for an additional 15 years passed the U.S. House on Thursday, with bipartisan support from U.S. Reps. Bill Foster, D-11th, and Adam Kinzinger, R-16th.

The National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2015, which has yet to be voted on in the Senate, included a provision inserted by Kinzinger and Foster that allows Will County to continue using the 455-acre dump on the site of the former Joliet Arsenal through 2041.
