If I am not mistaken, the loan amount from the revolving loan fund has a maximum of $50,000 and cannot exceed the amount of the participating bank's loan. If I am correct on that, which I may or may not be, then Bank of Quincy would have a minimum of $50,000 loaned on each originally. The City will take a hit of $83,754 and BOQ will have a loan balance of no less than $113,754 + $30,000 in buying…

I love you RUHEARINGVOICES... You hit the nail on the head... My goal is to acquire the lowest negative score ever from these hopeless conservatives. They are incorrigible. Faux news is not fair and balanced. It is outdated an unimaginative like the Old Testament.

ADM official says Decatur port has long-ranging benefits

Area businesses will be able to save money and time on both imports and exports thanks to a newly opened inland port in Decatur. 

Archer Daniels Midland Company owns the port which has access to three railroads - 5 interstate Highways and an airport that can support wide body aircraft. 

ADM Managing director of Intermodal and Container Freight Mark Schweitzer said the Midwest Inland Port will help the state of Illinois meet its goal of doubling its exports by 2014. 

"We look at it from our standpoint for agriculture exports, but there's a ton of other exports that are out there that we're just scratching the surface on." 

Schweitzer said the port in Decatur will save money for businesses and governments, "Imagine if you could take a thousand trucks off the road, and not have to go into Chicago congestion or St. Louis and take off/reduce 300 miles dray, or trucking, to maybe 30, 50 100 miles. Much more efficient for the taxpayer, much more efficient for the business itself." 

Currently - the inland port can handle up to 50 thousand shipping containers a year - but Schweitzer says that can be increased to 150 thousand in the future.
