The Village of Carpentersville is forging ahead on making the community an impressive, rejuvenated place to live and work. First on the list is to bring new businesses to the Route 25 corridor. According to Mayor John Skillman, "The addition of Walmart has been a tremendous help to the village. Retail Strategies was hired last year. The work is just beginning on changing the landscape of that road with the assistance of this consulting firm."
Elgin officials have begun annual budget talks and face cutting expenses plus finding new sources of revenue, not an easy task. City Manager Rick Kozal recently told the city council, "Elgin stands today as a community at a crossroads. Annual wage and benefit increases, coupled with state mandates for accelerated public safety pension funding, have created a fiscal environment that prohibits the city from maintaining flat operating expenses from year to year."
The City of Elgin has been awarded an Illinois Department of Transportation grant for the 14th year in a row. The grant will provide $94,323 to support efforts to reduce incidents of drunken driving and encouraging drivers and passengers to wear their seat belts. The Sustained Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) combines U.S. Department of Transportation and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration funds for use by law enforcement.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
