The Greenville Planning Commission held their April meeting
Monday and passed along for City Council consideration
plans by developer Leonard Taylor to annex and rezone
property he owns near Mount Auburn cemetery. The new zoning,
if approved, would allow the building of single family
homes on the property. Unlike the first time Taylor applied
to have his property zoned to allow duplexes there was
no opposition from anyone in the adjoining neighborhood.
The Commission also discussed suggested changes in the
City's sign ordinance, under the suggested changes there
would have to be public hearings to allow variances, signs
would have to have permits, someone buying a business
with a non-conforming sign would have to take that sign
down and temporary signs could only be used for 20 days
during a one year period.

FILES THIRD LAWSUIT
General Lisa Madigan filed a lawsuit alleging two out
of state companies obtained and sold the phone records
of Illinois residents without their knowledge or consent.
Madigan's suit names the defendants as Advanced Research,
Inc. and ARI-Advanced, LLC. These two companies are not
licensed to do business in Illinois. The lawsuit alleges
that in order to access consumers' wireless and landline
telephone records, the defendants' agents falsely represented
themselves as account holders or as agents or employees
of a cell phone company. They also allegedly tried to
gain unauthorized computer access to records. In January
and March of this year Madigan filed two lawsuits against
other companies that allegedly used similar, illegal means
to access phone records. The defendants are charged with
multiple violations of the Illinois Consumer Fraud and
Deceptive Business Practices Act. Madigan's lawsuit asks
the court to prohibit the defendants from advertising,
offering for sale and selling telephone records or other
private records and from further violating Illinois' consumer
protection laws. The lawsuit seeks a civil penalty of
$50,000 and additional penalties of $50,000 for each violation
found to have been committed with the intent to defraud.
Madigan's lawsuit also asks the court to order the defendants
to pay for all costs for the investigation and prosecution
of this case.
