Sadly, facts like these don't seem to mean anything to the Hard Core Left-Wing Dimmokrat Obama supporters. They just get in the way of the Blind Agenda and, oh hell, must just be Republican BS anyway. And that Fox News, you can't believe ANYTHING they say! Now, CNN, NBC, PBS and anonymous bloggers, now THEM you can believe!

and recall Obama's removal of the work requirement:
the Obama Administration issued a bureaucratic edict declaring that state welfare bureaucracies would no longer need to comply with the work participation standards established in the 1996 welfare reform law.

This is the video of the guys on the ground. But who you gonna believe, (constant liar) Obama, or the "lying eyes" of the heroic men risking their lives? As to "no stand down" from the WH, the commander in chief gives orders to go, and as I quoted earlier, the general said they were anxiously waiting. It's like a fire chief getting an alarm on a fire, but never sending out the trucks. Then…

The big thing being done in this reform is allowing parents of legal children to gain recognition. That means all that mommy has to do is cross the border and pop out a baby and poof mommy will be legal. Then dad can come along too. We need to stop the idea that just being born here makes you a legal citizen. At least ONE of your parenets should be a citizen by going through the process that millions…

JWCC Trustees abate part of 2013 Tax Levy

JWCC Trustees abate part of 2013 Tax Levy

1 year, 1 month ago by

John Wood Community College Trustees authorized the abatement of tax levied for 2013 to pay debt service on General Obligation bonds and announced the intent to levy an equity adjustment for the same tax year.

At Wednesday night's meeting, the JWCC Board approved a resolution to abate the 2013 tax levy associated with the General Obligation Bonds (Alternate Revenue Source), Series 2012.  JWCC has sufficient funds from operations for the annual payment of the principal and interest on these bonds. 

As a result, the counties of Adams, Pike, Hancock, Calhoun, Schuyler, Brown, Morgan, Scott and Cass will not collect approximately $93,000 for payment in 2013.

Trustees adopted a resolution declaring the intent to approve the annual equity adjustment for the 2013 tax year as permitted by state statute. JWCC is one of 15 community colleges in the state eligible by law for the adjustment because the College operates at a tax rate below the statewide average. 

The adjustment is .0393 per $100 equalized assessed valuation (EAV), which would generate an estimated $540,000 for JWCC’s operation fund for the 2015 budget year.  The Board announces its intent for the equity adjustment every October prior to its annual levy. The overall tax levy will be discussed at future meetings.

In other business, the Board:

Accepted and filed the annual audit report for fiscal year 2013 from WIPFLi auditing firm. WIPFli noted that JWCC has complied with government accounting practices and has exercised proper internal controls.

Authorized Dr. John Letts to enter into an agreement with a collective bargaining negotiator for the negotiation period with the JWCC Faculty Association IFT/AFT local #6086 Collective Bargaining Unit.

Approved submission of a reoccurring Illinois Cooperative Work-Study Program Grant in the range of $25,000-$30,000.  The purpose of the grant is to support work study/internship activities with local businesses that align with courses of study offered by JWCC.  The grant pays one half the hourly wage of the internship and the employer pays the other half of the 160, 240 or 320 hour internship.  Previous funding resulted in 23 internships within culinary arts, agriculture and early childhood education.
