Village officials in Hillcrest held a public hearing last night dealing with the annexation of 64 acres north of the community.
The property is located near the intersection of Illinois 251 North and Lind Road. It is currently being used as farm land.
Under the annexation agreement, Regional Ready Mix is scheduled to purchase 3 acres of land for a new location. They have been on River Road in Hillcrest for more than 7 years.
Village Board President Kim Whalen said that they have talked with the company about moving out of the Hillcrest for several months.
No one voiced their opposition about the annexation proposal last night. The board will most likely vote on the agreement during their meeting on July 10th.
Whalen also hopes other industries will move into this area in the future.
