Reopen Chicago Street or preserve courthouse parking?

Author: Editor

Ray Wesley wishes more traffic would zoom by the Red Goose Cafe that she and her husband, John, opened on the northeast corner of Jefferson and Chicago streets 16 months ago.

So do city of Joliet officials.

And there’s an easy fix for the problem. All the city has to do is get the county to reopen Chicago Street immediately east of the Will County Courthouse so traffic heading north from Interstate 80 could flow all the way through the downtown. That would be a godsend, Wesley said.

Will County workers' union could call strike

Author: Editor

Will County officials are preparing for the possibility of a strike by the county's largest employees' union.

Members of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 1028 have told union leaders they could call for a strike vote if negotiations break down. Both sides have identified wages and health insurance as key points.

"We're looking for fair wages," said David Delrose, president of the employees' union. "We know we are going to have to pay more for (health) insurance and we're prepared to pay more; but we just want fair wages."
