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.

County officials this week said they were serious about building a new courthouse in downtown Joliet – but some were equally hesitant to go all in, arguing the city should offer incentives for county government to stay put.
“The development of an urban site really is dependent on Joliet’s cooperation,” County Board Speaker Jim Moustis, R-Frankfort, said during a workshop Tuesday. “It’s hard to make a commitment until they make a commitment.”
