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…

Farms can still be included in planned Illinois Historic Farms book

5 months, 2 weeks ago jg-tc.com

Farms must meet the criteria to complete the Department of Agriculture's certification process

From jg-tc.com:

The planned "Illinois Historic Farms: Honoring the State's Enduring Heritage of Family-Owned Farms" coffee-table book will feature histories of family-owned farms.

Publisher Acclaim Press reported that the book will focus on farms that have been certified by the Illinois Department of Agriculture as Centennial or Sesquicentennial farms. The book also will feature photos and stories documenting the history of agriculture in the state.

Promotional brochures began to be mailed to eligible farms late in 2013.

"Submissions from those who want their farm histories included in the book have been pouring in," said editor Charles Francis Francis. "We're even getting calls from farms that haven't been certified through the IDOA asking if they can be in the book."

However, a large number of the promotional mailings have been returned undelivered to the publisher. The publisher also reported that it is hearing from local sources that many Centennial and Sesquicentennial farm owners haven't gotten a brochure.

As a result, the publisher plans to work with local historical societies and agricultural officials to update their mailing list and to make sure that every eligible farmer knows about the book.

"We don't want any farm that wants to have their history included in the book to be left out because they didn't learn about the project," said Delayne Reeves, coordinator of the Department of Agriculture's Centennial and Sesquicentennial Farms Program.
