Beloit releases Gateway developer from obligations
City Council president, James Van De Bogart says several major developments, including Kerry Ingredients, the Staples warehouse, and Kettle Foods, helped push the Gateway into the black over the last year. MLG asked the city to sign off on the agreement so they could move on to new developments.

Monday's meeting only took about a half hour, and Van De Bogart says the decision to sign off was unanimous
