The Village of Forreston has been awarded a grant from a state program for improving and developing municipal park facilities, according to Senator Tim Bivins and Representative Jim Sacia of Pecatonica.

“Representative Sacia and I have received the wonderful news that Forreston has been awarded a $133,500 grant from the Open Space Lands Acquisition and Development (OSLAD) Program to expand Warnken Park,” Senator Bivins said. “We also hope that this announcement from the Governor’s Office signals his intent to meet the state’s current fiscal obligations and release funding for other important programs and projects.”

The two northwestern Illinois lawmakers congratulated Forreston Village President Michael Harn and other local officials for their efforts in seeking the funding from the program.
