Sycamore City Council Considers Capital Plan

Feb 21, 2017

Sycamore’s city council examined a $14.3 million capital improvement plan for fiscal year 2018.

The Daily Chronicle reports about $10 million would go toward the third phase of construction for a wastewater treatment plant expansion.  The city slowly raised sewer rates since 2015 to pay for the improvements, but the current plans have dedicated revenue streams.

64-year-old Robert Wilson and his 85-year-old mother Patricia died five months ago from blunt force trauma after a forced entry into their home.

They want state approval to build a more than 100,000 square foot health and fitness center.  The DeKalb facility would be south of Bethany Road and Greenwood Acres Drive.   

The group's application claims the goal of the center is to increase access to forms of preventative health care, and boost the overall health of DeKalb County.  

The application is on the agenda for the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board's March 14 meeting.  

DeKalb and Sycamore held lotteries this week to determine which candidates would appear first on their local ballots.
