Bedford Park-based Chicago Pallet Service IL, set to close one of their two locations.  Chicago Pallet currently has two other locations in Elk Grove Village and the Village of Maywood.

COOK COUNTY |  Cook County Commissioners today approved three proposals from President Toni Preckwinkle’s Bureau of Economic Development (BED) that will provide tax incentives to businesses in Cook County.

The incentives, which will either create new or save existing jobs, were approved in the following communities:  Bedford Park, Elk Grove Village, and Franklin Park.

 As a result of redevelopment activities, these incentives should support the creation of an estimated 15 new private sector full-time jobs, retain an estimated 35 full-time jobs and support 66 construction jobs.
