Roy Burrell owns the property located at 731 21st Street, East Moline. The property owner received a 30-day letter from the Inspection Department citing numerous violations for either repair or demolition, and advising the property is subject to demolition. The letter was sent certified mail, return receipt requested, and was returned as “Article Unclaimed” by the Post Office. The property is dangerous and should be demolished.

Recommendation: That the City Council authorize the City Attorney to file suit for demolition of the property. Budget Impact: Monies available from Demolition Fund.

Hotel Accommodation Tax (Rich Keehner)

Proposal to establish an East Moline Hotel/Motel Accommodation Tax. The Hotel Tax would be upon the rental or leasing of any hotel accommodations at the rate of five percent (5%)of the gross rental or leasing charge. All proceeds resulting from the imposition of the tax under this ordinance, including penalties, would be distributed as follows:

  1. Four percent (4%) of the gross tax revenue collected shall be retained by the City to defray the cost of administering and processing the imposition and collection of the taxes.
  2. The Director of Finance in accordance with the written “Investment Policy” of the City shall invest the balance of the gross tax revenue collected.
  3. The amount collected from the Hotel Accommodation tax shall only be extended by the City to expand and maintain City owned bike/multi-purpose trails, to promote tourism and conventions within the City, and to attract non-resident overnight visitors to the City.


Recommendation: Approve East Moline Hotel Accommodation Tax and direct City Attorney and City to finalize the East Moline Hotel Accommodation Tax Ordinance. Budget Impact: The Hotel Accommodation Tax would increase City revenues and provide another funding source to maintain City owned bike/multi-purpose trails, to promote tourism and conventions within the City, and to attract non-resident overnight visitors to the City.

A motion was made by Alderman Thodos, seconded by Alderman Meredith, to approve the request as presented. Upon roll call the following voted in favor: Kelley, Teague, Heiland, Thodos, Moreno and Meredith. Motion carried.
