Wetmore Township has helped the Kane Area School District develop a new parking lot off the traffic circle in front of the high school.
The new lot is ready for use today-- the start for classes in the school district.

"This piece of equipment enabled the school district to complete the work on creating additional parking in the front lot of the Kane Senior High School," the district said in a letter of appreciation to the township.
