SOUTH HOLLAND | The Village Board approved a motion that authorized the re-subdivision of property owned by Providence Life Services.
Providence owns and operates two health care and rehabilitation facilities in the village. Holland Home, on Wausau Avenue, and Rest Haven, located next door at 16300 Louis.
The two facilities were situated on three different parcels of land. The motion that came before the board would allow Providence to subdivide the land, turning the three parcels into two larger ones.
Providence met with the Planning and Zoning Commission last month to go over the plan, and got a favorable recommendation from the commission. That recommendation was sent to the board, reviewed and approved unanimously.
“It was more of a housekeeping item for Providence and for the village,” Village Administrator Jason Huisman said. “It does not change any of the zoning for Providence, or impact any of the services they offer.”
The board also adopted an ordinance to allow the Parks and Recreation and the Public Works departments to sell vehicles that were declared surplus. Each department has two vehicles that were declared surplus and will be sold off.
Chicago-based Hyman’s will be opening operations in South Holland. They will open a business called E-Z Mix at 530 W. 172nd St. Hyman’s petitioned the board and requested a Class 6B tax resolution on the property to help defray development costs.
The request was conditionally approved, based on property and business development by Hyman’s.
The board approved a motion to allow the Northern Illinois Municipal Electric Collaborative to acquire bids for aggregate electrical purchases for the village. NIMEC has acquired bids for the village for four years. This particular bid will be for electricity to power the village street lights and water pumping stations.
