DuPage County in 60 Seconds


Old gas station gets new life:

Itasca village officials Tuesday cleared the way for a retail business and an ATM machine to occupy the long-vacant building at 102 East Irving Park Road. Once a family-owned gas station, the building has been vacant for the past five years. Representatives of Wall Street Partners, the owners of the site, said it is likely a Starbucks coffee house would eventually occupy the site, but they did not yet have a signed lease. Board members were concerned a retail store would further congest westbound rush hour traffic on Irving Park Road, but were powerless to prevent such an establishment from entering the previously zoned lot.

Former alderman remembered:

Former Warrenville Alderman Earl Brogie was remembered fondly at Monday's city council meeting nearly two weeks after his death. Brogie, 74, died Sept. 6 at Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield. He served as a council member from 1993 to 1997. He had been a fixture at city council meetings and was one of the most vocal opponents of the city's development. Mayor Vivian Lund and Brogie were often on differing sides of issues that affected Warrenville, but Lund spoke fondly of Brogie Monday night. Residents also remembered the civic- minded carpenter during public participation. Brogie ran for mayor several times, but was never elected. He opposed the city's incorporation in 1967 and many other developments in the city's 30- plus year history. A seat in the back of the audience often occupied by Brogie sat empty Monday.

Peabody Mansion receives grant:

The DuPage County Forest Preserve District has received a second state grant worth $1 million to help pay for the renovation of the historic Peabody Mansion at the Mayslake Forest Preserve in Oak Brook. Officials intend to use the grant to provide more parking and address other exterior issues at the historic, Tudor-style mansion.
