ONARGA — After a lot of speculation, the University of Illinois has a new place to call home for its Extension Office in Onarga. And that home isn’t far away. It’s next door.
A June 30th deadline had the Extension backed up, forced to find a new location. The current office at 912 W. Seminary in Onarga will soon become a medical facility.
The Extension officials are working with the Bork family to use a building right next door to the current Extension. The Bork family also owns the building Extension now occupies. So, the Onarga location will continue to serve the immediate area.
The Extension was notified earlier this spring that its current office will become the new home of Gibson Area Hospital & Health Services' Onarga Clinic.
