143rd Street Veto Override Unsuccessful

The vote to override Will County Executive Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant’s veto on the most recent vote to widen 143rd Street by Homer Glen was unsuccessful Thursday. The 10-9 vote, called by Chairperson Judy Ogalla, fell short of the three-fifths needed to override. The project will continue with the Will County DOT overseeing the construction.
