Illinois County Board Approves Repair Shop
Dec. 3, 2018—A request to set up an auto repair garage in Ottawa, Ill. was approved by the La Salle County Board, according to The Times. John and Polly Kirby requested about one-half acre to be rezoned from agriculture use to business.
The Times reports that the property is southwest of Ottawa and owned by William and Debra Mucci.
The board approved a 14-12 vote to rezone the area. According to the publication, board member, Thomas Thrush, expressed concern about the impact a garage would have as it's nearby the Starved Rock State Park.
