Author: Editor

If all goes as planned, the Will County Recorder of Deeds and Coroner offices will move into the former Social Security Administration building in downtown Joliet before the end of the year.

County and local officials Thursday celebrated the start of construction on the building, 158 N. Scott St.

Montgomery-based Lite Construction Inc. is remodeling the 11,500-square-foot building for $1.4 million under the guidance of architecture firm Cordogan Clark & Associates.

Emissions go down, so will jobs

Author: Editor

NRG Energy's announcement last week of a unit shutdown and conversion to natural gas at two local power plants may have been a victory for environmentalists but it will come at a cost of 250 well-paid jobs that may be tough to replace.

 “Much of these are well-paid, union jobs, and a lot of those guys have been there a long time,” said John Greuling, president and CEO for Will County Center for Economic Development. “Pay is not what it used to be for a lot of these jobs. That's another trend in the overall economy that all of us are trying to adjust to.”

Power firm NRG to close plant, cut jobs, as part of pollution reduction plan

Author: Editor

NRG Energy Inc. announced Thursday a pollution reduction plan for its four Illinois coal-fired generating plants that pushed the state more than halfway toward meeting new proposed federal limits for reducing carbon dioxide pollution.

NRG Energy officials told the Tribune on Wednesday that it will cease coal operations at one generating unit in Romeoville (the Will County plant), convert its Joliet plant to burn natural gas and upgrade its two other coal plants in Pekin and Waukegan to comply with environmental regulations.
