In a "Weekly Update" from our administrator, board members are advised that Kelley Iron Works is moving from Farmington Road to a location near Uftring Auto Mall in East Peoria. EDC said several sites in Peoria were examined. Peoria County does not have our own EDC. The board has considered having our own EDC but it has not appeared to be economically feasible.
Maybe someone will comment on the number and names of companies that have relocated from Tazewell County to Peoria County in the last 2 years or so.
