The pill Hobart is wanting the city to take would be easier to swallow, if they were bringing American Family, AT&T, Motorola, or something like it to fill up this building with 300-400 Jobs. Sadly though projects like the one I just described or the Newcome Lofts will only come to this area with help from the City or County (not saying the city should give in to all of Hobarts demands) because the…

The TIF district does not include a Property Tax abatement. Those are features of the Enterprise Zone which this site is not a part of. Would like to know how we are going to force that one through against our rules.....not that I doubt they will do it. Take a look at the eligible TIF expenses and tell me where they are going to lie to us to classify 1.8 million of a 4 million project as TIF eligible.…

Just remember that getting taxable property there doesn't bring in any extra $$ for the city. What it does is lower property taxes for the rest of us. Obviously more $$ back for more expensive properties (i.e. same % saved across the board). By the same token the TIF district raises our taxes until such time as the TIF expires. That's because some of the tax $$ are diverted to a special…

Bizarre sequence of events in GOP gubernatorial campaign

From from suntimes.com:

In an announcement rocking the Republican gubernatorial primary race, Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford contended Friday that his opponent, millionaire businessman Bruce Rauner, paid an attorney who demanded $300,000 from him on behalf of a Rutherford employee making allegations against him.

Rutherford said at a news conference that the allegations are false but declined to describe them. They were made last week by a current employee in the treasurer’s office, Rutherford said.

Rutherford said he has launched an independent investigation into the allegations and accused Rauner of trying to destroy him.

“I’m going to turn this back on him,” Rutherford said. “I find this to be very, very offensive. ... Illinois politics is hardball.”

Rauner’s campaign denies having anything to do with the allegations against Rutherford.

“Treasurer Rutherford should spend his time answering the serious claims made against him by a state employee, rather than trying to distract attention with false claims against us,” Rauner spokesman Mike Schrimpf said.
