PARIS, IL. (ECWd) –
During the Edgar County Board meeting on “tax day”, April 15, 2015, the Edgar County Board, among other things, voted to give money to an unregistered entity that purports to go by the name of the “Chrisman Area Community Club“. This club does not “officially” exist according to the Illinois Secretary of State’s Corp./LLC database, and it is not listed in the Illinois Attorney General’s Charitable Organization database.
The donation was $600 and came from the Hotel/Motel tax fund.
This is unacceptable and should not be tolerated. Last year when this same organization asked for tax money, I informed the board during that board meeting that the Chrisman Area Community Club was not registered to do business in Illinois, and never has been, but they gave them the money anyway.
This makes me wonder how many other non-registered organizations are given your tax money…
