 Illinois Cement has called back the 96 employees laid off in January.


“We’re calling everybody back, beginning tomorrow,” company president Wayne Emmer said Monday afternoon. Employees who had been laid off Jan. 8 received calls beginning around Feb. 14 that they would be needed this week at the plant.


“We won’t be starting the kiln until approximately the second week of March… It’s not the kind of system where you can just push a button to start it,” Emmer said.
