I believe if you check, you will find that Property Developers are required by City Code to put in sidewalks at their expense unless they get a waiver from that part of the code. Once the sidewalks are in, they become the city's responsibility to maintain.

Does anyone else remember that much (most?) of the land the Kroc Center now occupies was formerly Salvation Army property and thus exempt from taxation all along? That would seem to mitigate some of the tax issues some on here are so jacked up about. If I am in error, I welcome correction and/or dissenting opinions.

Well, you're too sharp for me. I was just trying to relieve that longing. I know how much that can hurt.

Well that guy asked for a gift of money to build his building. So yeah, many objected. The city proposed making it a loan and he backed out. To the best of my knowledge the Kroc center never asked for a thing. It's the city that put proposed putting in the sidewalks since they own that part of the property...just like they own the sidewalks in all the city right of way. Now...since sidewalks…

Adams County EMS service receives grant to replace equipment

1 year, 3 months ago by Bryan Nichols

Money from Marion Gardner Jackson Trust will go toward defibrillators

The Adams County Ambulance and Emergency Medical Services will soon see new equipment thanks to a grant.

The Adams County Ambulance & EMS was awarded a $60,000 grant from the Marion Gardner Jackson Charitable Trust last week.

The money from the grant will be used to replace two sixteen year-old cardiac monitor/defibrillators with two new units. According to a release, the two new Physio-Control Lifepak 15 models will have expanded capabilities to meet current patient care requirements including sending EKG data to the Emergency Department and Cardiac Cath Lab. That would provide receiving physicians with a preview of the incoming patient’s condition.

EMS Chief Paul Davis said the Ambulance Service regularly uses grants to purchase much needed patient care and training equipment "to ensure we t support such expenditures."

He said the Adams County Ambulance & EMS has also received funds from other federal, state and local grant programs over past two or three years. In addition to the Marion Gardner Jackson Charitable Trust, other grant benefactors include ADM Community Cares, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Illinois Department of Public Health EMS Assistance grant, Enbridge, Adams Rural Electric Cooperative-Penny Power grant, and FEMA’s Assistance to Firefighter’s Grant.

Davis said Paramedic Kyle Dixon has been largely responsible for writing the grants and obtaining the extra funding.
