County Line Square 25th Anniversary

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the opening of the County Line Square Shopping Center. To recognize this milestone, Communications and Public Relations Coordinator Janet Kowal has been working with the businesses in County Line Square to develop a banner that will be displayed in the downtown area. The cost of the banners will be at the business owners’ expense. We have hoped that the shopping center would sponsor a celebration of some type for its 25th Anniversary, but at this point it does not appear that it will happen.

Village Administrator Vacation

Please be reminded that I will be on vacation on Friday, September 5. Community Development Director Doug Pollock will be in charge during my absence.
