IDOT buys an airport in Will County

Author: Editor

The Illinois Department of Transportation has purchased Bult Field – a general aviation airport near Monee and a key component of the state’s overall plan to develop the South Suburban Airport – for $34 million.

The transaction covers 288 acres, including the airport’s 5,000-foot runway, taxiway, hangars and terminal, as well as additional farmland surrounding the airfield near Monee.

“This acquisition marks a defining milestone for the South Suburban Airport,” Susan R. Shea, IDOT’s director of aeronautics, said in a news release on the acquisition. “The Bults are true aviation enthusiasts who built one of the finest general aviation airports in the country. This ownership transition will be as seamless as possible for airport users.”

Will County native, ReShawn Howard, has been named to the newly created budget director position within the Will County Executive’s office. ReSha named county's new budget director

Author: Editor

A Will County native has been named to the newly created budget director position within the Will County Executive’s office. ReShawn Howard of Shorewood was approved at today’s Will County Board meeting. This position will work with the county’s finance director Karen Hennessy.

With the rapid growth of Will County and increased demands on the finance department, Will County Executive Larry Walsh reorganized the structure of his budget and financial staff to better serve the residents. Walsh promoted Karen Hennessy to the redefined role of Finance Director, responsible for the oversight of day-to-day financial operations, the outside audit, and the preparation of the County’s annual financial report. The Budget Director will focus on the development and monitoring of the County’s annual budget and long term capital planning. Both positions will be funded within the constraints of the existing budget.

County purchases bank building for future courthouse

Author: Editor

The first domino in Will County's long-term building plan fell this week with the approval of a contract to purchase the First Midwest Bank building at 50 W. Jefferson St., the proposed site of a new Will County courthouse.

The Will County Board's capital improvements committee was appraised of the development this week, and the $4 million purchase deal is expected to close sometime this summer.

First Midwest will lease the first floor of the building from the county for up to two years after the closing.
