SOUTH HOLLAND, IL — The village board approved a significant tax break for a developer looking to bring a carwash and retail and restaurant properties to a property here, nwi.com reported.
The Oct. 7 story stated that the trustees voted 5-0 to recommend a Class 8 property tax resolution that urged the Cook County Board to grant a property tax break of more than 50 percent for the site.
