Do you know these people? The City submits an annual report to the State of Illinois regarding unclaimed property that requires all property (uncashed refund checks, payroll checks, utility deposits, license deposits, vendor checks) being held 7 years (prior to June 2012) be presumed abandoned and remitted to the State. Staff makes every effort to locate these individuals and businesses. If you have any information about the following individuals or businesses, please call (309) 524-2086 or email. If we can verify the person is entitled to the property, the funds will be returned to the owner rather than the State. Once the funds are submitted to the State, you will have to contact the State directly for reimbursement.
