NEW MANUFACTURING PLANT CAN MAKE AN ECONOMIC IMPACT

 

An expansion and construction could be underway soon at the industrial park in Greenville. Lisa Stephens, Director of Economic Development for Greenville says, “We are excited about the upcoming development at the Wolf Industrial Park in Greenville. The company is called Molinero Incorporated. They will be bringing at least 45 full-time jobs and will pay from $12.00 - $20.00 an hour. Because of the specialty white corn they will be using, Clarkson Grain plans to construct a grain elevator operation near the facility. The 45 jobs at Molinero and the 10 permanent jobs at Clarkson Grain will have a great impact on our community. Molinero is expected to be in full production in 18 months."


NEW LEGISLATION CRACKS DOWN ON EXCESSIVE SPEEDERS

 

Senate Bill 3796, initiated by Secretary of State Jesse White to crack down on excessive speeders, was signed into law recently by Governor Pat Quinn.  The new law prohibits the issuance of court supervision to drivers ticketed for speeding 40 or more miles-per-hour above the posted speed limit.  The measure also establishes speeding violations of 30-39 miles-per-hour above the speed limit as a Class B misdemeanor.  Published records show that more than 40 percent of drivers ticketed statewide since 2006, for driving in excess of 100 miles-per-hour, received court supervision.  White initiated other legislation, targeting excessive speeders in Illinois, in 2000 and 2006.  This new law becomes effective January 1, 2011.
