IVCC Plans In Ottawa Announced

Posted by wlpo on July 6, 2009

If the drive to Oglesby is keeping people from Marseilles or Ottawa from going to Illinois Valley Community College, it shouldn’t be an issue much longer.

IVCC officials along with city of Ottawa and Centrue Bank officials held a press conference this morning to announce the location for a satellite IVCC campus in Ottawa. It’s going to be in the old Ottawa Post Office or what’s now office space for Centrue Bank at 321 West Main Street.

The city is expected to buy the building for 700 thousand dollars after getting a 90 day purchase option for a dollar. They’ll then lease it to IVCC for a four-year term initially with the lease amount to be negotiated. Classes would start in the new building next fall.
