Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Lucas Tire site, Brookfield, Illinois
Lucas Tire cleanup could resume next week
Discovery of additional hydraulic lifts, tank delayed work

The pile of rubble facing Ogden Avenue on the former Lucas Tire site at 9528-40 Ogden Ave. since winter could be removed beginning as early as next week, according to Brookfield's village manager, now that funding for site cleanup has been released by the federal government.

Village Manager Riccardo Ginex said work will soon resume at the brownfield site after completing a new application for a federal loan program administered through the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) on Monday.

The IEPA reportedly will loan the village up to $120,000 to complete site clean-up work, which began last year when the former Lucas Tire building was demolished.
