Elk Grove Village has formally approved the annexation of 58 acres of commercial property near Interstate 90.

The village board Tuesday night unanimously approved bringing the unincorporated area -- approximately bordered by the tollway, Higgins Road, Elmhurst Road and Oakton Street -- into the village's boundaries. Businesses in that area would be served by Elk Grove police and fire departments and receive village water and sewer service. Officials have estimated a property tax increase of "pennies".

 

No businesses in that area will be forced to close because of the annexation.

The voluntary annexation of a separate 41-acre parcel owned by the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago took place June 28.
