Remember February 2018

Homewood moved a step closer to leaving the Chicago and Harvey system and getting water from Hammond, Indiana, through Chicago Heights. The village board approved a contract at its Sept. 24 meeting with engineering firm Burns & McDonnell. The agreement with the Kansas City, Missouri, company includes design, permitting, right-of-way acquisition, soil investigation, water quality assessment, construction engineering and any other necessary tasks to prepare for the installation of 2.36 miles of water main between Homewood and Chicago Heights. The village will pay Burns and McDonnell $813,000 out of its water and sewer fund . . .
