BOND COUNTY BOARD TALKS BONDS

 

The Bond County Board met Tuesday morning at the courthouse. At the board meeting, representatives from Stifel Nicholas and SWIDA were on hand to present information about a federal government bond opportunity that exists from the recovery act.  The recovery act allows each county to declare recovery zones consisting of either the entire county or portions of the county.  It then allows the issuing of bonds to aid in infrastructure, improvements or in building of new businesses or commercial buildings.  The federal government would then pay 45% of the interest payments, up to the county’s total allocation. In the case of Bond County, the allocation is 1.18 million dollars.  The county would be the conduit through which the bonds are issued while repayment would be the responsisbility of the corporation or government body using the bond money.  The first step would be to declare parts or all of Bond County a recovery zone.  That decision was tabled until the September 15 county board meeting to allow for more information gathering and contemplation. You can see the Bond County Board meeting on New Wave Channel 18 tonight at 6:00 p.m.

ALL HUNTERS ENCOURAGED TO TAKE HUNTER SAFETY COURSE

 

With the fall hunting season rapidly approaching, the Illinois Department of Natural Resources is encouraging all hunters to take a free Illinois Hunter Safety Education Course offered through the department.  Illinois law requires anyone born on or after January 1, 1980 to successfully complete a hunter safety course before receiving an Illinois hunting license.  Many states require evidence of completion of a hunter safety course before issuing a non-resident hunting license.  All who complete the course and pass the final exam receive a certificate of competency.  For more information on hunter safety courses, call 1-800-832-2599.
