Crest Hill Mayor Ray Soliman and key project stakeholders broke ground Thursday on the city’s new $4.5 million public works facility.

The project is on 6 acres of land at the corner of Oakland and Raynor avenues, according to a news release from the city. It will house the majority of Crest Hill’s 22 public works employees and administrative staff. The facility also will provide covered parking for public works vehicles to reduce costs and increase longevity of city property.

Building inspector Kirk Wilkins, chief mechanic Brian Semplinski, city administrator Heather McGuire and the city’s finance consultant, Nick Narducci, along with Mayor Soliman and the Crest Hill City Council were key to the project getting off the ground.

Construction is expected to be completed before the end of the year.
