There has never, ever been a board that believes in "saving the money for a rainy day". They have to SPEND THE MONEY. And even SPEND THE MONEY they haven't even gotten yet.

Your missing my point. My point is if new buildings were built with a Capital Fund, a cash $$$$ fund approved by taxpayers, the interest savings would be given back to taxpayers and the buildings would still be built albeit at a slightly slower rate. Do you think the polls for this issue would even be close if approval of a capital fund was partnered with a larger decrease in the bond fund tax rate…
ReardenShrugged - Court-appointed monitor ordered for IDOT hiring - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Maybe judges should monitor and approve all government hires. Our country is big on checks and balances and hiring is one of those areas that is frequently exploited for political gain. I know people who turned down government job offers because they refused give a big chunk of the salary back to their political party. Now every time I meet someone with a government position, I wonder which came…

New lighting will be installed at the Oakley Lindsay Center next month

8 months ago by Jim Dewey

Cost will be around $72,000

During the February monthly meeting of the Oakley Lindsay Center Board -
Executive Director Rob Ebbing reported that lighting upgrades in the
McClain/Kent expo hall are moving forward.

After conducting a lighting study it was determined that existing lighting
fixtures can be replaced one for one with LED light fixtures which can be
controlled individually or by groups wirelessly.

Partial funding for the project is coming from 2 grants which Ebbing
initially expected would pay for about half of the expected $100 thousand
cost.

But the low bid from Springfield Electric came in at $72,424.56.

The Civic Center's share of the cost, about $16 thousand, will come from the
bond budget.

In addition to saving about 60 percent on electricity in the Expo Hall -
Ebbing says the lighting will also save labor.

With the current lighting, anytime a customer wants lights to be brighter or
dimmer, someone has to use a cherry picker and physically unplug or re-plug
the lights.

With the new lighting, that can be done from a computer, I-Pad or smart
phone.
