The Village of Niles celebrated the kickoff of the Stormwater Relief Program’s Tier One projects with a Groundbreaking Ceremony on Thursday, June 26. Many residents enjoyed coffee and pastries as they were able to see first-hand a basin which is being constructed at Our Lady of Ransom. Residents were also able to see plans for the Maryhill Cemetery project. Representatives from both Our Lady and Maryhill were present at the ceremony, along with the Stormwater Commission, State Representative McAuliffe, Commissioner Silvestri from Cook County, and Commissioner Shore of the MWRD of Chicago.
Both projects are anticipated to bring enormous flood relief to residents in the area. The projects are of great importance to the community, which was evident in the large number of residents that attended the Groundbreaking Ceremony.
