Mundelein bar gets $6,100 village grant for exterior improvements
A Mundelein bar will receive a $6,100 municipal grant for exterior improvements.
The village board on Monday approved the grant for Teddy O'Brian's, 320 E. Hawley St., as part of the town's Business Incentive Grant program.
A fence around the property, electrical and lighting work and plantings have been proposed for the tavern, which opened in 2019.
Under the program, awards of up to $5,000 are available for sign improvements, up to $25,000 for interior improvements and up to $25,000 for exterior improvements.
Grants cover up to half the cost of an improvement project.
Instead of getting the money up front, recipients are reimbursed for their expenses. Work must be completed within one year of the grant being awarded, or else the grant will be revoked.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants have been awarded to dozens of businesses through the program.
