Rushville to Get Help for Prison Preparation

Rushville, IL – Rushville's mayor has been told by the state to expect partial recompense for infrastructure the city installed to get ready for its unused prison. Ron Shepherd says he has been told to expect between $70,000 and $80,000. He says that's well short of the more than $450,000 the city spent to construct water and sewer lines to the site northwest of town. However, he says any amount will help.
