Sawdust & Lace Designs opens anew

By John Mueller

Erik Duvall told the Glencoe Planning Commission exactly what it wanted to hear Thursday night, May 9.
The owner of the house-on-blocks at 1304 Sunrise Drive promised the commission he would have the house, weather permitting, on a foundation with back-filling work completed by July 1, when the sewer and water hookups are completed.

This year, House Democrats passed legislation that transfers $418 million out of the transportation fund back to the general fund to pay for a number of new government programs.
