ISP Release Update for Arrest for Criminal Damage to Vehicles – Interstate 74

On March 30th, the Illinois State Police was initially dispatched to two separate incidents in regard to driver side window damage.  At that time, the Illinois State Police began investigating the matter with suspicion that person or persons were intentionally targeting motor vehicles with the intent to cause harm or damage. 
During the course of the next two months, the Illinois State Police followed up on multiple leads, conducted numerous interviews, and conducted multiple proactive enforcement operations in attempt to apprehend the person or persons responsible for these acts.  We take these acts of violence very seriously as they represent clear and present danger to the public and have the capacity to create serious injuries, crashes, and/or kill the innocent motoring public. 
Throughout the course of the investigation, we were able to identify a suspect.  Armed with that information, on Friday, June 1, 2018, Illinois State Police conducted a covert operation resulting in a felony stop and arrest of Kevin L. Casey of Janesville, WI.  There are currently fourty-five damage to vehicle incidents being investigated at this time across Champaign, Vermilion, Piatt, and DeWitt Counties.  The investigation also includes multiple states to the east including Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, and Virginia.   
This investigation was truly like finding a needle in a haystack and the Illinois State Police is pleased to report this arrest due to its significance in ensuring public safety.   
 
 
 
 
The success of this investigation was a joint effort involving numerous entities.  The Special Agents within Illinois State Police Zone 5 Investigations, Patrol Troopers from the Illinois State Police District 6 and District 10 Headquarters, the Champaign and Vermillion County State’s Attorneys Offices, Champaign County Sheriff’s Department, Champaign Police Department, Urbana Police Department, Oakwood Police Department, and the many other entities within the Illinois State Police which assisted during the course of this investigation. 
This case is still under investigation.

SBA Offers Disaster Assistance to Residents of Illinois Affected by Severe Storms and Flooding

Illinois businesses and residents affected by the severe storms and flooding from Feb. 14 through March 4, 2018, can apply for low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration, SBA Administrator Linda McMahon announced today.

 

Administrator McMahon made the loans available in response to a letter from Gov. Bruce Rauner on April 27, requesting a disaster declaration by the SBA.  The declaration covers Iroquois, Kankakee and Vermilion counties and the adjacent counties of Champaign, Douglas, Edgar, Ford, Grundy, Livingston and Will in Illinois; and Benton, Lake, Newton, Vermillion and Warren in Indiana.

 

“The SBA is strongly committed to providing the people of Illinois with the most effective and customer-focused response possible to assist businesses of all sizes, homeowners and renters with federal disaster loans,” said McMahon. “Getting businesses and communities up and running after a disaster is our highest priority at SBA.”

 

“Businesses and private nonprofit organizations may borrow up to $2 million to repair or replace disaster damaged or destroyed real estate, machinery and equipment, inventory, and other business assets,” said SBA’s Illinois District Director Robert Steiner.

 

For small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture and most private nonprofit organizations, the SBA offers Economic Injury Disaster Loans to help meet working capital needs caused by the disaster.  Economic Injury Disaster Loan assistance is available regardless of whether the business suffered any physical property damage.

 

“Loans up to $200,000 are available to homeowners to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate. Homeowners and renters are eligible for loans up to $40,000 to repair or replace damaged or destroyed personal property,” said Richard Morgan, acting director of SBA’s Field Operations Center East in Atlanta. 

 

Applicants may be eligible for a loan amount increase up to 20 percent of their physical damages, as verified by the SBA for mitigation purposes.  Eligible mitigation improvements may now include a safe room or storm shelter to help protect property and occupants from future damage caused by a similar disaster.

 

Interest rates are as low as 3.58 percent for businesses, 2.5 percent for nonprofit organizations, and 1.813 percent for homeowners and renters with terms up to 30 years.  Loan amount and terms are set by the SBA and are based on each applicant’s financial condition.

Darren E. Duncan, Vermilion County Treasurer & Ex-Officio Tax Collectorwould like to share that the 2017 Real Estate Tax Bills will be mailed on May 4th, 2018.

As the Vermilion County Treasurer I would like to share that the 2017 Real Estate Tax Bills will be mailed on May 4th, 2018. Taxpayers will have until June 15th, 2018 which is about 45 days to make their first installment of taxes. The second installment will be due September 4th, 2018.

 

State statute dictates that bills should be mailed in early May.  For several years the County Treasurer’s Office, as much as we’d have preferred to follow state guidelines, have been unable to do so. I am pleased to announce that we will meet that goal this year. With the on-time billing, property owners will have a wider window to pay their real estate taxes with nearly 3 months between the installment due dates.  This will also allow the Treasurer’s Office to make timely distributions to the taxing bodies of Vermilion County, including but not limited to, many cash strapped school districts.  It is planned that our office will be able to maintain this schedule consistently in coming years so that tax payers as well as taxing districts know what to plan towards.

 

            Some of the convenient ways to pay your tax bill include paying online under the Treasurer’s Tab on the County Website, vercounty.org; paying in person at the Vermilion County Administration Building; mailing your payment to the PO Box listed on your tax bill payment coupon, or at most Vermilion County bank.  Vermilion County banks that accept real estate tax payments include:

 

   - First Midwest Bank                 - Old National Bank                     - Iroquois Federal 

   - First Financial Bank                 - Philo Allerton Bank                   - Gifford State Bank              

   - Illinois National Bank              - Longview Bank & Trust            - CIMB Bank

   - Main Source Bank                   - First Farmers Bank                    - Longview Bank of Ogden  

   - Prospect Bank                          - Rantoul (Rossville) Bank          - First National of Catlin

       

Please remember to check your tax bill to verify the proper exemptions have been applied. The owner occupied and senior citizens exemptions are the most common exemptions received by taxpayers.

Governor Rauner Requests SBA Assistance for Iroquois, Kankakee and Vermilion Counties for February Floods

Governor Bruce Rauner today submitted a request for U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) assistance to help people and businesses in Iroquois, Kankakee and Vermilion counties recover from severe storms and floods in February.

If approved, the SBA declaration would enable people and businesses in the three counties as well as those in contiguous counties to apply for low-interest, long-term loans.

“Many people are still working to fully recover from these devastating floods,” said Gov. Rauner. “If approved, these low-interest loans could speed up that process for many people and businesses.”

To be eligible for an SBA declaration, at least 25 homes and/or businesses in a county must sustain major, uninsured losses of 40 percent or more. A damage assessment conducted in March by the SBA determined 74 homes and nine businesses in Iroquois County, 28 homes and three businesses in Kankakee County, and 21 homes and seven businesses in Vermilion County met that criteria.

On April 11, the state of Illinois requested federal assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help people recover from the floods, but that request was denied late Thursday.
