E-M:/ Waukegan holds fast to harbor plan

Hang in there Waukegan! 
WAUKEGAN -- The City Council ignored the advice of U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk Monday and declined to re-work an agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that would clear the way for $24 million in federal funds to clean up Waukegan Harbor.

"The city wants a non-industrial harbor, which is consistent with the Waukegan Downtown and Lakefront Master Plan. The community wants a clean harbor." therefore the City Council expects the federal government to take whatever means are necessary to start the final cleaned-up process."
