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…

Share the Harvest happening now

1 year, 10 months ago by

The processed venison, usually ground into burger, is distributed to local food pantries and is made available to families

The Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri, along with the Conservation Federation and local food pantries, encourage area hunters to donate a deer for the purpose of helping families in the local community.

Share the Harvest is a program administered by the Conservation Federation of Missouri.  Hunters who want to participate simply take their deer to a participating meat processor.  There is typically no processing fee charged to the hunter when a whole deer is donated.  The processor is reimbursed $60 by the Conservation Federation, for each whole deer processed.

The processed venison, usually ground into burger, is distributed to local food pantries and is made available to families in the community who are struggling to make ends meet.

Financially speaking, many families are currently experiencing the "perfect storm".   The rising costs of groceries, fuel and utilities, often coupled with the loss of a job, cause many local families to have to choose between basic necessities.  Donating a deer to share the Harvest is one way to help mitigate these difficult choices.

In 2011, the 11 days that comprised the Firearms "Main Portion" season yielded 191,000 of the 292,000 deer harvested throughout all deer hunting seasons.   Over 6,000 deer were donated to Share the Harvest in 2011.

Many processors only accept deer donations for a few weeks in November, which include the 11 days of the Firearms "Main Portion" season.

For more information about Share the Harvest call The Food Bank at (800) 764-3663 or visit www.mdc.mo.gov and click on "Share the Harvest".
