    Glen Ellyn public works employees will now be able to work on a village-owned sanitary lift station located on College of DuPage property, under an agreement approved this week. The lift station was constructed in the early 1970s on COD property at 580 S. Park Blvd., and while an easement was drafted at the time, it was never executed, village officials said.
