MOUNT PLEASANT (WLUK) -- Mount Pleasant officials have revealed how much they're offering landowners on the future site of the Foxconn plant.

The village is offering remaining homeowners 140 percent of the market value of their property.

Those with vacant land, the offer is $50,000 an acre.

Some farmers are becoming millionaires, even if they didn't ask for it.

Other homeowners are trying to negotiate with the village.

"It'll be a shorter time period than going through the appraisal and all that," said homeowner, Sherri Saver. "I just want it over with. It's been very hard to go through all this."

The village says homeowners will also be paid for relocation expenses.

Mount Pleasant is buying properties as part of a $764 million local incentives package for Foxconn.
