I believe if you check, you will find that Property Developers are required by City Code to put in sidewalks at their expense unless they get a waiver from that part of the code. Once the sidewalks are in, they become the city's responsibility to maintain.

Does anyone else remember that much (most?) of the land the Kroc Center now occupies was formerly Salvation Army property and thus exempt from taxation all along? That would seem to mitigate some of the tax issues some on here are so jacked up about. If I am in error, I welcome correction and/or dissenting opinions.

Well, you're too sharp for me. I was just trying to relieve that longing. I know how much that can hurt.

Well that guy asked for a gift of money to build his building. So yeah, many objected. The city proposed making it a loan and he backed out. To the best of my knowledge the Kroc center never asked for a thing. It's the city that put proposed putting in the sidewalks since they own that part of the property...just like they own the sidewalks in all the city right of way. Now...since sidewalks…

Frese, Brady discuss 2nd Amendment in Macomb, Galesburg

2 years, 7 months ago by Bob Gough

Republican State Senate candidate Randy Frese appeared with Sen. Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) in Macomb and Galesburg as they discussed 2nd Amendment rights.

"The first bill I will propose as senator representing the 47th senate district will be for conceal and carry," Frese said.  "It’s important to our district for several reasons.  One being is that a great deal of this district is rural.  A call to the sheriff could result in a delay of a reaction if immediate services were needed.  People need to be able to protect themselves, their home, and their property.  Law abiding citizens will follow the gun laws that are set into place.  That’s the bottom line.  Preventing people from concealing and carrying is not only detrimental to their safety and security, but also denying them a fundamental right that has been enacted by 49 other states.”

Frese says he's been hearing from members of the NRA in the 47th District about further proposed anti-gun legislation that is coming from Chicago

“The idea that the Cook County Board President is discussing plans to tax ammunition as a way to prevent people from using guns illegally is not only troubling, but also irresponsible," he said.  "We shouldn’t tax law abiding citizens under some misguided notion that criminals will suddenly stop committing crimes because we’ve written a new law.  This is a bad solution to a problem that predominately applies to Cook County, and we need to elect officials that are able to work independently of the Chicago Machine.” 

 

 

Senator Bill Brady alsoweighed in during the discussion.  “Randy’s ideas and work ethic will make him an important addition to the senate.  He will work hard not only for gun rights, but also on getting the budget under control and bringing jobs to Illinois,especially western Illinois.  I look forward to working with him and am proud to support his campaign for senate.”
