DACC considers $1 million bond

Danville Area Community College trustees Tuesday night will consider issuing $1 million in general obligation bonds to purchase new computers and other technology for the college and levying an annual tax to pay the principal and interest.
The $1 million will be used during two years — $500,000 each year — to upgrade technology and purchase equipment to provide state-of-the-art capital resources in DACC’s classrooms and supporting services.
To meet the principal and interest obligations of the debt, the college must issue technology and equipment funding bonds in the amount of $1 million.
During the fiscal year 2016 budgeting process, college officials realized that an extensive list of capital renewal projects exists, plus a continued need for resources to meet the technology and instructional equipment needs of the college.

County election filings start Monday

Filing for the General Primary Election on March 15, 2016, will begin at 8 a.m. Monday and will run through 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 30, at the Vermilion County Clerk’s office at the Courthouse Annex, 6 N. Vermilion St.
Vermilion County Clerk Cathy Jenkins and her office reminds candidates to have all paperwork notarized prior to filing. If a candidate’s paperwork is not notarized at the time of filing, the candidate will be asked to step out of line to do so, and he or she will forfeit their desired time of filing.
Jenkins’ office has notaries available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and they can notarize candidates’ paperwork free of charge.
The county clerk’s office will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 26, and Friday, Nov. 27, for Thanksgiving.
It will accept filings for offices including auditor, circuit clerk, recorder, state’s attorney, coroner, county board members and precinct committeemen.
Questions can be directed to Lindsay Light, supervisor of elections, at (217) 554-1911 or ccelections@vercounty.org.

Celebrate Thanksgiving Tradition of Buckling Up, Driving Sober

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is joining Illinois State Police (ISP) and local law enforcement agencies to remind motorists to buckle up and drive sober during one of the heaviest travel periods of the year. With one of the biggest party nights of the year on Wednesday and more people on the roads through Sunday, police throughout the state are stepping up their enforcement of seat belt law violators and impaired drivers during the long holiday weekend.

The effort marks the beginning of an end-of-the-year push to keep traffic fatalities at record-low levels. Fatalities in Illinois are five percent higher today than at this point last year; 881 so far in 2015, compared to 833 on this day a year ago.
