SELCO INC. Selco--Safety Equipment Leasing Company--provided a variety of equipment including cones, signage, and signals associated with temporary traffic management during highway construction. The company sold its property at 15 S. Main on August 2, 2016 to SPAHN AND ROSE LUMBER COMPANY for $1.5 million. (1)

On September 17, 2016 the announcement was made that Selco would move its operations to East Dubuque, Illinois by the end of the year. A property at 210 Second St. would become the site of a 15,000-sqare-foot building which would serve as an office, shop and warehouse. This would replace the property sold in August. A property at 154 Second St. would be used for outside storage. (2)
