LASALLE COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT

Next hearing Sept. 18 BY DEREK BARICHELLO Shaw Media OTTAWA — A Putnam County attorney charged with solicitation of sex will see whether a motion to toss evidence from a LaSalle County prostitution sting is successful before his next hearing. Roger C. Bolin, 65, of Hennepin,

was one of nine arrested in a LaSalle County sting at Ottawa and Peru hotels that included the former mayor of Sandwich, who recently pleaded guilty, and an Illinois Roger C. Valley Community Bolin Hospital official. Bolin serves as a public defender in Putnam County. Bolin is also charged with a com-

eligible offense to acquire evidence through recordings. IVCH official James “Jim” G. Schaefer, 54, of Peru, also filed a similar motion, saying the audio and video recordings placed in a hotel during his April 4 arrest were illegal. Schaefer’s hearing is scheduled Thursday, Sept. 12, six days prior to Bolin’s, meaning it should give insight to what will happen with Bolin’s similar motion.

4 Open house at Putnam County Ag Museum

PCR photo/Dave Cook

Sunday’s rainy weather provided the Putnam County Ag Museum with the perfect day for the indoor exploration of local history during the annual open house event. The members of the Putnam County Historical Society happily shared details of the many recent improvements to the museum, which include a sheltered display of antique farm equipment, the addition of a display from the steel mill, a reorganization of existing displays with improved cataloging, several new attractions and more. The museum features items from all parts of the day-to-day life of Putnam County’s past and is located at 501 Old Highway 26 in Hennepin.

PUTNAM COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD

Board OKs junior high water tank project Underground tank from 1964 will be replaced BY DAVE COOK news@putnamcountyrecord.com GRANVILLE — Installed in 1964, the underground water tank at Putnam County Junior High has reached the end of its service life. During an Aug. 6 special meeting, the Putnam County School Board unanimously voted to move forward with a project to replace the aging piece of infrastructure. Representatives from the Healy Bender architectural firm and the local Chamlin and Associates engineering firm shared information with the board regarding their options and the challenges each could possibly include. EPA regulations prohibit the installation of another underground tank, and several financial aspects of replacement options currently remain unknown. “We’ve also learned there’s asbestos involved, and we’re waiting for verification on whether we can leave the existing tank and just fill it, or whether we’ll have to remove it and abate the asbestos,” Superintendent Carl Carlson said. Dave Patton of Healy Bender said the district has two potential options. The first would be to run an extended length of new 6-inch water line to McNabb and connect to the village’s water supply. Patton said if fire pro-

tection was a component of the water supply, the size of the line would need to be increased to 12 inches. He added if easements could be obtained from mul- Carl Carlson tiple far mers, the Putnam length of line needed County School would be a minimum superintendent of 10,000 feet. “But we’re not even sure if the village would allow this, or if the farmers would agree to the easements. There would also be the financial components of the easements, as well as an estimated $300 a month ongoing charge from McNabb based on the school’s water consumption rates,” Patton said. The second, and more likely, option is the installation of an above-ground tank near the same area as the underground tank. This option would also include the construction of a small building that would house a portion of the tank, as well as controls and a heat and circulation system to prevent freezing. This option has an estimated cost of roughly $108,000. The 30-foot-long above-ground tank, with a diameter of 10 feet, would connect to the existing well and have a 20,000-gallon capacity. Both Patton and Mike Perry, also of Chamlin, said it would be unlikely the operation of the school would be interrupted because most of the work could be completed before switching over to the new tank.

“The worst-case scenario is we’d have to bring in a pressurized tank,” Carlson said. The biggest issue, time-wise, is the 14 to 16 weeks needed to construct and deliver the tank. It was estimated approximately 45 days would be needed to receive the required permits. Patton and Perry said completing the project during the winter wouldn’t necessarily be a problem because firm ground could be helpful as the new tank is put into place with a crane. Additionally, a majority of the project could be completed beforehand. The board voted to approve moving forward, as well as the transfer of $250,000 from the Working Cash Fund into the Operations and Maintenance Fund to pay for the work. Carlson said

any money left over from the project would be transferred back into the Working Cash Fund. Carlson also said the project should be considered part of the district’s upcoming overall facility plan. “This project would score very high on the plan’s prioritized list,” Patton said. The board is expecting to receive the results of the ongoing survey of the district’s four buildings this fall. The survey will be used in the development of a 10-year improvement and replacement plan. It will prioritize a number of projects for the board, including many that Carlson said would be “big ticket items.” The next Putnam County School Board meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 19.

GRANVILLE

GRANVILLE — On June 30, the Stateline Challenger’s Group arrived at the Putnam County Food Pantry located in the Granville United Church of Christ. Along with an abundance of horsepower, they also brought a generous monetary donation of more than $300. This car club has more than

200 members and is based in the Rockford-Beloit area. Jim Turner of Granville met with the club and became a member three years ago during the “Cars Time Forgot” show in Delavan, Wis. The club’s mission is to help provide groceries for those less fortunate. They do through spring,

summer and fall cruises. This year, their summer cruise brought them to Putnam County. There are no dues or obligations, and they collect at every event throughout the year. The group also goes out during the winter, just without their cars.

Members said if people didn’t see the 21 Plymouth Challengers traveling through the area, including trips through Hennepin, Princeton and Tiskilwa, then they missed the special treat known as “the Skittles” because of all of the colorful cars.

16 Luminant’s Hennepin Power Plant celebrates OSHA VPP Star Status

Photo contributed

Through a steadfast commitment to safety excellence, Luminant’s Hennepin Power Plant and its employees are proud recipients of OSHA’s prestigious safety award — the Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star Status certification. Hennepin plant is the first coal plant in Luminant’s fleet and one of only a few coal plants in the entire U.S. to achieve OSHA VPP Star Status. The Hennepin plant team recently held a celebration event, featuring a VPP flag-raising ceremony and congratulatory remarks from company leaders and OSHA representatives. OSHA’s VPP program recognizes employers and workers who have implemented effective safety and health management systems, and maintain injury and illness rates below national Bureau of Labor Statistics averages for their respective industries. In total, 12 sites across Luminant’s fleet have been awarded OSHA’s VPP Star Status certification. Attendees included: Hennepin plant employees and retirees; Byron Veech, Hennepin plant manager; Barry Boswell, Luminant senior vice president and chief fossil officer; Wayne Harris, Luminant regional vice president of coal operations; state Rep. Lance Yednock; representatives from the offices of U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth, U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger and state Sen. Sue Rezin; and OSHA representative Candra Jefferson.

PUTNAM COUNTY | PROPERTY ASSESSMENTS

Tentative multiplier of 1.0000 announced Figure is the same one as last year’s equilization factor SPRINGFIELD — Putnam County has been issued a tentative property assessment equalization factor of 1.0000, according to David Harris, director of the Illinois Department of Revenue. The property assessment equalization factor, often called the “multiplier,” is the method used to achieve unifor m property assessments among counties, as required by law. Harris said this equalization is particularly important because some of the state’s 6,600 local taxing districts overlap into two or more counties (e.g., school districts, junior college districts, fire protection districts).

If there were no equalization among counties, substantial inequities among taxpayers with comparable properties would result, Harris said. State law requires property in Illinois to be assessed at one-third of its market value. Farm property is assessed differently, with farm home sites and dwellings subject to regular assessing and equalization procedures, but with farmland and farm buildings assessed according to standards based on productivity. The equalization factor is determined annually for each county by comparing the sales price of individual properties sold over the past three years to the assessed value placed on those properties by the county supervisor of assessments or county assessor. If this three-year average level of assessment is one-third of market value, the equalization factor will be

one. If the average level of assessment is greater than one-third of market value, the equalization factor will be less than one. And, if the average level of assessment is less than one-third of market value, the equalization factor will be greater than one. Assessments in Putnam County are at 33.31 percent of market value, based on sales of properties in 2016, 2017 and 2018. The equalization factor currently being assigned is for 2019 taxes, payable in 2020. Last year’s equalization factor for the county was also 1.0000. The tentative factor is subject to change if the County Board of Review takes actions that significantly affect the county assessments, or if local officials or others can present data showing the Department of Revenue’s estimates of the average level of assessments

in the county should be adjusted. A public hearing on the tentative multiplier will be held between 20 to 30 days after the tentative factor is published in a newspaper of general circulation within the county. A change in the equalization factor does not mean total property tax bills will increase or decrease. Tax bills are determined by local taxing bodies when they request money each year to provide services to local citizens. If the amount requested by local taxing districts is not greater than the amount received in the previous year, then total property taxes will not increase even if assessments may have increased. The assessed value of an individual property determines what portion of the tax burden a specific taxpayer will assume. That individual’s portion of tax responsibility is not changed by the multiplier.

PRINCETON

IN BRIEF Townwide garage sales in Hennepin have been scheduled for Sept. 20-21

Freedom House needs volunteers to help support the victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse PRINCETON — Freedom House is in great need of volunteers to support victims and their families impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault. Volunteers primarily serve as on-call medical advocates and crisis hotline workers. People wishing to volunteer will receive in-depth training in a series of free classes running from Oct. 29

to Nov. 19 at Freedom House’s facility in Princeton. The training includes 30 classroom hours and 30 online hours (to be completed before the first classroom day). Classes will be held on four Tuesdays, from 6 to 9 p.m., and three Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants must attend every class. Applications are due Oct. 4. “Volunteers are essential to the Freedom House mission,” said

Amy Brandon, volunteer coordinator. “There are many ways to help, but our most urgent need is on-call medical advocacy. Receiving immediate compassion and support from a trained advocate is vital for victims to begin healing from trauma.” For more information, or to obtain an application, visit www.freedomhouseillinois.org or call 815-872-0087.

HENNEPIN — The dates for Hennepin’s townwide garage sales have been set for Friday, Sept. 20, and Saturday, Sept. 21. Residents of Hennepin or Hennepin Township interested in participating should call 815-925-7319, or email hennepinparkdistrict@mchsi. com, to have their sale added to the map at no charge.
