John and Kathy Di Tomasso have requested that the village annex their two-acre property, which holds their home and business.
John and Kathy Di Tomasso, owners of Wilson Lawn & Landscape, have asked the Village of Northbrook to annex their two-acre property at 2500 Pfingsten Rd., which is currently zoned as unincorporated Cook County, the Chicago Tribune reports. If the annexation application is approved, the village would begin collecting a few hundred dollars in annual property taxes and the property owners will now have access to village services, such as water and sewage systems, according to the Chicago Tribune. A garage at 2500 Pfingsten Rd. was destroyed in a fire last November, but no one was hurt. Sign up for the Northbrook Patch morning newsletter to get the latest community updates in your email.
