KPD AND GREENVILLE CITY DISPUTE IS OVER

 

The long and costly dispute between the city of Greenville and the Kingsbury Park District is now over.  The order issued by Associate Judge Keith Jensen, late last week, stated that the ownership of the portion of Dewey street, including the right of way from north to south, next to the Jaycee ball fields belongs to the city.  Judge Keith Jensen decided that the KPD is the rightful owner of Jaycees Park with the exception of a right-of-way for Dewey Street from north to south.  This decision seems to bring to a close a four year old dispute between the city and the KPD. 

AUXILIARY CONTRIBUTES OVER $3 MILLION TO DATE

 

The Greenville Hospital Auxiliary annual dinner meeting was Monday night.  Hospital representative Alan Gaffner shared some information about the auxiliary.  Since 1957 when the auxiliary was formed, it has contributed over $3 million dollars to the hospital.  Their annual gift this year was $262,500.00 which will be used to complete the expansion and renovation of the imaging services department to purchase 25 lifeline in-home emergency response units and $500.00 for patient teaching items to be incorporated into the new mammography suite.

 

Alan also said the auxiliary sponsors approximately 27 fund-raising projects each year.  A highlight this year is the opening of the thrift shop in its new location, which is off to a great start.  All of these projects reflect the involvement of thousands of dedicated folks from Bond County and the participation, of those who attend and make purchases at the many events, completes the circle of support.

STUDY SHOWS $153 MILLION IN UNCOLLECTED ILLINOIS ON-LINE SALES TAX

 

A recent Department of Revenue study puts Illinois state government's lost tax collections from online sales at $153 million for the current fiscal year.  Illinois law requires online companies that have a presence, or actual store, in Illinois to remit tax for products delivered to Illinoisans.  The department estimates that it already receives taxes from 68 percent of the sales made by the 100 largest online merchants.  The collection of Illinois Use Tax, or sales tax from remote sellers, remains a high priority of the Department of Revenue.
