LGDF Cuts: You may have heard something about Governor Rauner’s proposed State budget cutting revenues that belong to local governments. Specifically, The Governor has proposed cutting the local share of the state income tax (LGDF) by 50%. If this went into effect it would cost the Village of Clarendon Hills about $410,000/year. Such a cut would force all municipalities to cut services, reduce capital improvements or raise local taxes, if the last is even an option. Bottom line – the Governor is proposing taking the Village’s share, which you paid through your state income tax, and using it to fix the State’s budget problems.
If you would like more information please take a few minutes to watch the video provided by the DuPage Mayor’s and Manager’s Conference which is available via this link, which explains this matter in greater detail. We urge you to send an e-mail to the Governor, and our local legislators, supporting keeping our local taxes here in Clarendon Hills by clicking this link .
