Elliott Aviation Keeps Tax Exemption

Updated:

 

The Moline school district sued Governor Quinn and several different state and local officials over a law that exempts Elliott Aviation from property taxes.
     
Elliott wants to expand by adding 50 jobs to its Moline facility but the tax exemption leaves the Moline school district out $150,000 dollars.
 
In a statement, the Moline superintendent called this ruling "extremely disappointing." The school district has been struggling with financial problems over the past year and now another $150,000 a year will be gone from the budget.

In April, the school board decided to cut $845,000 from the budget, avoiding buying things like new textbooks and new technology.

This comes after eliminating 24 teaching positions in March in an attempt to cut over one-million dollars in district spending. 

Elliott Aviation was contacted and asked them if they do plan to expand in the Quad Cities because of this ruling. They said they are grateful for the judge's decision and it will allow Elliot Aviation to stay focused on growing the business in the Quad Cities.
