JOLIET – Ecolab plans to expand production capacity at its Joliet plant. Joliet is considering an expansion of the Des Plaines River Valley Enterprise Zone to include the Ecolab plant, which would provide the company with an exemption for state sales tax on machinery purchased in the project. Ecolab makes cleaning products at the 610,000-square-foot plant on Route 6 that borders the enterprise zone. It is the largest factory operated by the global company based in St. Paul, Minnesota.
JOLIET – Joliet estimates the city budget in 2018 will lose $1.9 million in state funding. The shortfall is a result of changes in the state budget affecting Joliet and all municipalities. Cities will get 10 percent less in a local share distributed from the state income tax and begin paying a 2 percent fee to the state for administering sales tax dollars that come back to local government.
JOLIET – The city is negotiating a deal that could give $400,000 and tax rebates to a private developer converting two downtown buildings into apartments. City officials said the project fits what the city wants to see downtown – people living there. However, developers who renovate buildings into apartments and condos can’t get enough money from bank loans to cover the costs of the projects, Joliet economic development director Steve Jones said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
