It's not tax abatement...it's a tax refund which is a financing tool. And there's lots more than what is listed on your link It's a rather long section of 65 ILCS 5/11-74 http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/ilcs4.asp?Ac...

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.…

Could be or it could be for a burnout. which could be defined as unsafe because you lack complete traction. Or it could be for accelerating too fast but not buring the tires and without going over the speed limit. or she could have exited a private drive like the bowling alley without properly yielding.

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…

City of Quincy looks to add late fees

3 months ago by Bob Gough

City Treasurer wants to add 6 percent to bills not paid in 30 days

The City of Quincy's Finance Committee supported a proposal from City Treasurer Peggy Crim to add a 6 percent late fee for bills not paid to the City within 30 days. 

Crim said it is a flat 6 percent and does not compound. She said the City currently charges no late fees and she hopes the action will incentivize people to pay promptly. 

Such bills include stores who are billed for trash stickers they sell, rents, leases and other services they City may charge for including the cost of mowing property in nuisance abatement situations. 

Water bills are not affected as the City already charges a late fee on them. 

The resolution will go before the City Council in two weeks. 

Aldermen also approved the low bid of Illinois Ayers Oil Co. of $57,783 for necessary fluids for maintenance of city owned vehicles for the next year and a quote from a Florida company for $5,562.50 for 275 gallons of mosquito spray.
 
Sixth Ward Alderman Jim Musolino also said there would be a meeting Tuesday evening for those who are interested in the upcoming work being done on Melview Road. The meeting will be at 1726 Melview Road at 6:30 p.m.
