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…

Durbin makes fund-raising stop in Quincy

Durbin makes fund-raising stop in Quincy

Private event Sat night at QU

U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) made a stop in Quincy for a private fund-raiser Saturday night at Quincy University.

Before the fund-raiser, Durbin made a statement about this year’s corn and soybean crop. “It’s the time of year when we have to take a close look at transportation issues, and one that’s going to be very important for us in the Midwest. We’re going to have a bumper crop of corn and soybeans, and we’re going to need a lot of efforts to move it. Obviously the river is major, and we’re going to use trucks, but 30% of our crop moves by rail. The problem we have now is that a lot of rail cars are being used in the upper Midwest to move bulk oil out of North Dakota and Canada. They’re finding problems in the upper Midwest when it comes to capacity. I wrote to the Surface Transportation Board in Washington this week, and I asked them to monitor the availability of rail capacity to move our crop. We wanna make sure that this great crop moves to market, and that our farmers end up with a profit at the end of the year.”

When asked about the priorities of his re-election campaign, Durbin said “The highest priority is, of course, to let the people of Illinois know what it takes to create good-paying jobs in the state. We’re still concerned. We’re coming out of the recession slowly, but there’s also a problem with jobs that don’t pay enough money. There’s a problem with students having too much college debt, and being unable to pay it back. So these are the basic middle-class, middle income working issues that I think are still front and center. What I’ve tried to do in the Senate is to bring the money home. Being a down-stater myself, and having represented this area for many years, I know how important it is to make sure we have the best investment. The single best investment we have in terms of job creation, I think, is our university system downstate, and our community colleges. The community colleges like John Wood, linking up with local employers, create real jobs with real paychecks. And I’m finding that to be a real source of hope, and the future of job employment downstate”.       

Durbin and his wife stayed  in Quincy overnight, and say a few remarks at the Sunday service at the Cathedral of orship on North 25th Street.
