FatWallet renews lease in Beloit - Beloit Daily News:


FatWallet’s original, one-year lease started April 11, 2011 and came with a second-year option. And in February, the company executed that option, ensuring its presence here into 2013.

Located at 80 and 100 E. Grand Ave. in two buildings that amount to more than 23,000 square feet, FatWallet has continued to expand since its northern migration, and now city officials hope the company and its more than 60 employees will stick around for the long run.

The building, a portion of which juts out over the Rock River, formerly housed offices for Kerry Ingredients and Flavours and is owned by the city

In September, FatWallet was acquired by San Francisco-based Ebates, also an Internet company. With a new, broader corporate structure and ties to the country’s tech-heavy West Coast, FatWallet and Ebates executives have yet to figure out what makes the most sense going forward, Washatka said.

The Daily Chronicle editorial board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down:

Thumbs up: To the DeKalb County State’s Attorney’s Office for launching an initiative against public corruption. The program aims to educate public officials on their responsibilities and expected conduct while in office and gives residents a resource to report instances of public corruption. The initiative includes the appointment of prosecutor Victor Escarcida as the supervisor of public integrity to lead the effort. While the timing of the initiative raises eyebrows – it was announced just weeks before Campbell faces Sean Smith in the March 20 Republican primary for the office – such a program is needed in this county. Residents can share concerns by calling 815-895-7164 or visiting
