    Forging company expected to bring 240 jobs to Merrillville [IN] location

    By Matt Saltanovitz

    August 22, 2011

    MERRILLVILLE | Gov. Mitch Daniels is expected to join executives from the Blue Island, Ill.-based company Modern Drop Forge on Tuesday to announce the company will be moving a major operation to Merrillville, resulting in about 240 new jobs.

    On Monday afternoon, Merrillville Town Councilman Richard Hardaway confirmed that Modern Drop Forge will be coming to Merrillville, following the Town Council’s passage of a 10-year tax abatement for the company in May.

    Hopefully this will result in a significant economic boost for Merrillville,” Hardaway said. “We’ve been looking for some time for some type of home run. But up until now we’ve only had nibbles.”

    He credited a team effort by elected and other town officials for attracting the company to Merrillville.

    ....The Republican governor has said he expects more Illinois companies will come to Indiana without IEDC assistance because they are attracted by the state’s minimal government regulation on business and lower taxes.

    August 23, 2011
    Associated Press via Bloomberg Businessweek

    The Regional Transportation Authority and city of Chicago filed lawsuits Tuesday against two northeastern Illinois communities, alleging the entities are owed millions in lost revenue because the towns engage in tax-incentive programs that divert sales tax revenues.

    The lawsuits against Kankakee and Channahon came after the Chicago Tribune reported that dozens of businesses in the Chicago area are moving purchases through satellite locations in outlying towns to gain a sales-tax advantage over their competitors.

    Chicago School board weighs property taxes, longer day
    By Jason Knowles

    ABC7News WLS

    Most homeowners, of course, would not be happy with the idea of paying more in property taxes, but the school board is expected to pass that issue Wednesday in order to pay for a giant budget shortfall.

    Also on the agenda is the idea of a longer school day. Chicago Public Schools officials want students in class longer, including an extra 90 minutes in school each day and two additional weeks to the school year.

    Read the story ...



    Mayor Rahm Emanuel just drips with irony, doesn't he?  He said he opposes the tax increase, but supports the school board: "I have no tolerance for an overblown bureaucracy, and I have no tolerance for inefficiency."  "I also expect people to respect the hard-earned dollars of taxpayers, but ... "  

    See Chicago Tribune article for more of his comments and how he previously opposed a tax increase.
