In July of each year, we are requested to post a public notice called the Consumer Confidence Report. It is a report concerning the quality of drinking water used on campus during the previous year (for the period of Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2016), and is required by the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1996. One way to serve notice is posting on the Web.

There are two reports to view and/or print -- the EIU Consumer Confidence Report and the City of Charleston Consumer Report. Access to both reports can be found here. If you would like a copy of these reports, please go there to print.

We are emailing all building coordinators with the link, as well, to ensure that all buildings connected to the campus water distribution system have a paper copy of both reports available for the building occupants to review. You will not receive a paper copy in the mail. The notice will be posted for public viewing in the same manner that other announcements are posted within your building. Also, a copy will be made available to any occupants who may request one. Thank you for your cooperation.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Aaron Kemper, Plumbing Shop, 217-581-7212.

During May, Booth Library acquired and cataloged 1,041 new items. The list can be viewed here. These acquisitions include donations to the library, re-cataloged library items, freely available government publications, and consortium-wide purchases. The recent university spending freeze (due to statewide budget issues) has limited the number of new items being added to library collections.

The list is arranged by location: Ballenger Teachers Center, Books, Electronic Resources, Illinois and Federal Documents, Maps, Media, Reference Collection, Special Collections and University Archives. The titles are listed by call number within each location. Please contact Karen Whisler, head of Collection Development, at 581-7551 or klwhisler@eiu.edu if you have questions.

The deadline to place print orders to be completed and billed to FY17 is 4 p.m. Tuesday, June 20. This will allow adequate time to make sure all orders and EOY billing are completed on time. Orders placed after that time will be billed to FY18. Orders for FY18 may be placed at any time, but they will not enter production until after July 1. If you have any questions, please contact Jon Crask by phone at 217-581-5334 or via email at jlcrask@eiu.edu. Thank you!

Effective July 1, 2017, the sales tax on general merchandise will increase from 6.75 percent to 7.75 percent. This increase was voted on during the November 2016 elections as a county-wide sales tax. Excluded from the tax increase are qualifying food items, drugs and medical appliances, which remain the same.

If you have taxable sales, please update your cash registers and/or other methods used to calculate the sales tax
