SUGAR GROVE—The Sugar Grove Village Board on Tuesday voted 5-0 to approve an agreement to lease 14 acres of agricultural land for one year.

A document from Anthony Speciale, director of public works, and Geoff Payton, streets and property divisions, states that the village currently owns 19.44 acres of agricultural land, 14 of which are suitable for farming. Each year, the village of Sugar Grove enters into a contract for the lease of agricultural land for farming purposes. By leasing the property for farming purposes, the village will keep the land tillable and also receive an income of $1,200 from this lease.
