HAMMOND | A newly completed pedestrian and bike trail bridge symbolizes the benefits of cooperation between Hammond and Munster, officials of both municipalities said Wednesday.
Two regional facilities produce enough electricity to power several thousand homes, or offset municipal power bills by hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.
Some officials throughout the country say they have learned the grass isn't always greener when it comes to alternative methods of disposing of municipal garbage.
Once more, the Lake County Solid Waste Management District Board of Directors have learned that investors are holding back on funding the waste-to-ethanol project until more is known about the process. Surprised? We didn't think so.
MUNSTER | An Evanston, Ill.-based company plans to build a solar panel manufacturing facility that will employ about 90 area residents within the next year, town officials said.
MUNSTER | The town and St. Thomas More Church are swapping parcels of land along Calumet Avenue, south of Ridge Road in a $1 transaction, town officials said.
In the 1950s through 1970s, the huge warehouse and office complex along Calumet Avenue was the state-of-the-art nerve center for Simmons Mattress Co. New products were developed there and produced for global distribution.
Municipal support for Lake County's trash-to-ethanol proposal does not appear as strong as proponents of the project have claimed, a Times survey of city and town leaders shows.
