This invoice from Aurora for $4500 was approved.
With the Skally’s project moving forward. Project moved closer to Hirlinger property. Looking to break ground near March 2016. All legal paperwork is being prepared and thru Barnes and Thornburg for the TIF bond. Have to get that done prior to the Plan Commission.
