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…

JWCC to Hold Manufacturing Expo October 3

Steigelman set to retire as JWCC vice president

2 years, 4 months ago by Bob Gough

 

John Wood Community College’s vice president of finance said farewell to the Board of Trustees Wednesday night.

Alan Steigelman will retire June 30 following 15 years of service to the College. The search for his replacement is underway and a new VP of finance should be in place in July.

During his report, Steigelman expressed appreciation for the JWCC staff, faculty and board. He has been responsible for JWCC’s business, information technology, physical plant, campus safety and security, bookstore and cafeteria operations. 

During his tenure, Steigelman coordinated the facilities development and funding for JWCC’s Quincy campus at 48th and Harrison and Workforce Development Center at 4220 Kochs Lane. 

Trustees voted to phase out the landscape and turf management program based on low enrollment. Accommodations will be made to ensure that currently enrolled students who have specified that they are seeking a degree or certificate will be able to complete their program.

Preparations for the 2013 budget are still underway and a tentative budget is slated to be presented to the Board in June.  The Board is scheduled to vote on the budget in July.

Trustees also formally acknowledged JWCC Student Government Association officers for 2012-2013.  They are as follows: Bryce Moore of Quincy, president; Morgan Roberts of Quincy, vice president; Lindsay Hall of Liberty, secretary; and Kelsey Busen of Mt. Sterling, treasurer. 

Board members recognized Meredith Brinkman of Fowler for her service as the 2011-2012 Student Trustee. Brinkman and Bradley Craigmyle of Quincy were recognized for being among a select group of Illinois community college leaders named to the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society All-Illinois Academic Team.

The Board also accepted $25,810 in grant funding from the Illinois Board of Higher Education for the Illinois Cooperative Work Study Program.  The program provides partial funding for employers who hire JWCC students for internships. 

JWCC Public Relations provided information for this report.
