Belvidere leaders are looking on the potential bright side of the DaimlerChrysler sale tonight. Most are feeling good about the future of the Belvidere plant.
Belvidere Mayor Fred Brererton says he was expecting today's announcement about the sale. The only mystery for him was the buyer behind it. Brereton says corporate buyouts can bring some uncertainty but he feels the strength of the Belvidere plant right now, like multi-million dollar robotics upgrades and good-selling cars, protects the city from losing a major employer.
