    Curb Your Car Week 2016

    The Springfield-Sangamon County Regional Planning Commission and Springfield Bicycle Advisory Council have once again teamed up with several area organizations and businesses to challenge employers in Sangamon County to encourage employees to leave their cars at home during Curb Your Car Week, from May 14th - May 21st, 2016 and instead bike, walk, run, or take the bus to work. The commute time is a great opportunity to get exercise, save some money, and reduce negative impacts on the environment.

    During that week, participating CMS employees will be sent a link to enter their commute information for the week recording number of trips, mileage etc.

    State Government Suggestion Award Board (SGSAB)

    Any Illinois resident may submit money-saving suggestions to the State Government Suggestion Award Board. Illinois residents can win between $50 and $5,000 for a successful suggestion.

    Each suggestion is assigned a reference number, presented to the board, and if appropriate, forwarded to relevant state agencies to determine if it is feasible, original, and cost-saving.

    If an agency certifies that a suggestion is feasible, the SGSAB will consider its eligibility for an award. Each award is paid based on the savings it generates.
