  • LISLE - Navistar Inc. announced the launch of its Diamond RenewedT program, which puts international used trucks through the industry’s most comprehensive inspection and mechanical reconditioning process. Vehicles also come standard with the industry’s leading warranty, up to two years, 200,000 miles, and Navistar’s OnCommandT Connection uptime monitoring system.

     
  • ROSELLE - A Roselle hotel has been rebranded as a Holiday Inn Express as part of the revitalization of the property that includes completing an unfinished banquet center. The re-grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for the 101-room hotel was held late last week at 1490 W. Lake St. 
  • ARLINGTON HEIGHTS - Two former suburban residents have returned to the area to snap up distressed properties, including the Metrolofts in downtown Arlington Heights for $3.89 million. And they plan to buy more. 
  • ELGIN - After grilling Grand Victoria Casino representatives on their long-term plans, Elgin City Council members agreed to lower the casino's lease payments. Starting Jan. 1, the casino would pay the city $1 million or 3 percent of the casino's net income, whichever is less, for the city-owned land it sits on. 
  • BARRINGTON - The retail development at Hough and Main streets in downtown Barrington is moving ahead, despite a fresh outburst of criticism, village officials said this week. The project involves two new one-story retail buildings on land that was bought by the village almost a decade ago. A private developer is responsible for operating the site and recruiting businesses to locate there. 
  • HANOVER PARK - Concerned by their growing numbers, Hanover Park officials have temporarily banned any new pawn shops, "cash for gold" stores and other lenders from opening up in town. Village trustees Thursday unanimously placed a nine-month moratorium on such businesses.

  • HANOVER PARK - After using alternatives to ComEd for two years - and cashing in on more than $1.7 million in savings - Hanover Park residents and businesses will once again become customers of the utility heavyweight. Hanover Park is one of 28 towns that have tasked the Northern Illinois Municipal Electric Collaborative with negotiating bids and ended up dropping alternative power suppliers. 
  • ELGIN - Two nursing and rehabilitation facilities are being built in Elgin and are expected to open sometime next year. Elgin Memory Care, a nursing and personal care facility at Shannon Parkway and Daisy Lane, should be completed by next summer; Addison Rehabilitation and Living Center, a skilled nursing facility at 1760 Capital St., might be done by early next year, representatives said. Both are on Elgin’s west side. 
  • PALATINE - More than one hundred customers, business associates and well-wishers gathered at the new world headquarters for electronics manufacturer Aimtron Tuesday, as company executives and local politicians celebrated the company’s move to Palatine.
