Ryan: $133,200 in Illinois FIRST Projects for Northwest Illinois

SPRINGFIELD -- Governor George H. Ryan announced today that he is releasing $133,200 in Illinois FIRST funding for projects in Northwest Illinois, including $50,000 to the Winslow School District 202 to replace all the windows in the elementary school.

The original windows, frames, sills and trim have deteriorated to the point where maintenance and heating is costly. The new windows will enable the building to meet health and life safety codes. The school is contributing $50,200.

This Illinois FIRST project was initiated by State Sen. Todd Sieben, R-Geneseo.

Other Illinois FIRST grants announced by Ryan:

  • $50,000 to the Sterling Rock Falls Day Care Agency, Inc., to construct a parking area and driveway for its new building.
    This project was initiated by Sieben.

  • $26,000 to the Milledgeville Unit Park District to resurface two tennis courts at Millwheel Park. The district is contributing $15,191.
    This project was initiated by Sieben.

  • $7,200 to the Warren Police Department to purchase two mobile video cameras.
    This project was initiated by Sieben.
