Des Plaines aldermen have approved giving two new downtown businesses $15,000 each to make interior renovations under the city's business assistance program.

The council voted recently to provide funding to The Local Coffee Tea & Sweets to operate a 360-square-foot counter service cafe inside the city-owned train station at 1501 Miner St., and Forever Yogurt, which is opening a frozen yogurt cafe at 1512 Market St. in Metropolitan Square.


The city council evaluates all grant applications above Sl0,000.
