Dust problems reported on the east side of La Salle

Is it hard to breathe these days on the east end of La Salle?

La Salle Alderman Jerry Reynolds says he continues to get several complaints from homeowners and business owners on the east side of town about dust. A neighbor of Illinois Cement living along Rockwell Road thinks the dust is coming from the cement plant and says it takes a special treatment including vinegar to get the dust off of cars and homes.

Mayor Jeff Grove plans to ask the cement company about the dust and said in the past they’ve offered to pay the cost of cleaning dusty cars. Alderman John Duncan wondered if some of the dust could be coming from farm fields.
