The Rockford Register-Star’s Kevin Haas continues to be the reporter to read if one wants to know what is happening to Crystal Lake’s Chemtool.
I had speculated that McHenry County still might pull off a retention of the Crystal Lake born and raised firm, but the Haas story yesterday seems to put that to rest.
“(Chemtool owner Jim Athans) plans to start construction late this year and continue into 2008,” (Growth Dimensions Executive Director Mark) Williams told him.
Apparently confirming the finality of the decision in the article were both McHenry County Board Chairman Ken Koehler and McHenry County Economic Development Corporation President Chris Manheim.
