Hoteliers upset with Bradley 

MANTENO — Representatives of Bradley’s hotels on Tuesday criticized the village of Bradley’s plan to divert hotel tax dollars from Kankakee County’s nonprofit tourist agency.

They also argued the village has not reached out to hotel owners about how to spend the money, although officials recently indicated they would.
