Ottawa Says Yes To IVCC Campus

Posted by wlpo on December 15, 2009

Going to classes at Illinois Valley Community College for people in places like Ottawa and Streator just got more convenient.

After lengthy negotiations, the Ottawa City Council Tuesday night unanimously approved a five-year lease for IVCC to open a satellite building in downtown Ottawa.  Assuming the IVCC Board approves the deal Thursday night, Mayor Bob Eschbach would purchase the classroom space from Centrue Bank for 625 thousand dollars.  Eschbach says renovations will be done by mid-July, so classes can start in August.

IVCC will pay the city 650 thousand dollars rent over the length of the lease.  The first six months of the lease, the city will let IVCC use rent money to advertise the new building.
