Bourbonnais will begin the $10 Million sewer project. The Village of Bourbonnais will begin construction of the most expensive project in village history, as it prepares for the new Interstate 57 interchange and a 1,200-acre business and industrial park at Bourbonnais Parkway.
The board unanimously accepted a $10.1 million contract with Kankakee Valley Construction Company Inc. to complete the first phase of a six-mile sewer system. Kankakee Valley Construction will complete the first 4 miles, which will run from the Perry Farm area through town to St. George Road.
Construction begins this summer (June) with the project expected to be completed by next year. The second phase of the project, which village officials believe will cost about $1.5 million, will connect to the interceptor at St. George Road and run to Bourbonnais Parkway.
"We are looking at the new interchange being complete by summer of 2018," Mayor Paul Schore said. "We want to things in place and utilities ready to go for future businesses and industries to come in."
On Tuesday, May 15th, the Village of Bourbonnais and the Bourbonnais Township Park District co-sponsored Reading is in Bloom - a family reading night event. The program promoted child literacy and invited Shabbona Elementary School students and their families to participate. Each student received a free book by international author and Orland Park resident, Nancy Gee, who read the latest in her Secret Series books: The Secret Room.
“This was a great opportunity for the Village to support our local school district and collaborate with the Bourbonnais Township Park District,” Mayor Schore confirmed. “It’s important to encourage children to develop good reading habits at a young age.”
“The Bourbonnais Township Park District is thrilled to be a part of promoting children’s literacy as reading is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be,” Executive Director Hollice Clark added.
