Sycamore car dealership closer to expansion

SYCAMORE – Brian Bemis Auto World is one step closer to adding a 1,700-square-foot showroom for imported vehicles to its location at 1875 DeKalb Ave. in Sycamore.

The Sycamore City Council voted to move a utility easement to the north of the property, allowing Bemis to continue with the expansion plans.

The easement serves the city’s storm sewer and lies along the current building’s location from east to west.

Sycamore City Manager Brian Gregory said this particular easement situation was relatively standard.

Gregory said the city’s Building and Engineering Department has contacted the other utility companies for permission to relocate the easement, and all but one have responded. Once all the utilities consent to the relocation, the city will follow through with the request.

Sycamore Mayor Ken Mundy said it’s always good to hear when a local business is expanding.

“We always welcome that,” he said.

Mundy also cited the planned additions to The Suter Company at 258 May St. and the construction of a new Casey’s General Store near Route 23 and Plank Road as positive developments for Sycamore.

“We have a couple of those expansions going on,” he said. “There’s some good things happening.”
