The village has no schools, library's etc to support. In essence this villages streets are lined in gold.
Someone mentioned the Sox moving after the lease expires in 2026, if the ownership at that time is the same as it currently it is, I would see them making the move. They love using other peoples money and this is a place where they would have the opportunity to do that.
The casino is actually in Des Plaines. I believe the license was originally awarded to Rosemont, they had a building ready (the Muvico Theatres) but the state ended up moving the license nearby to Des Plaines because Rosemont probably gives Cicero a run for it's money as the most crooked town in Illinois.
