|Dear Midlothian Residents,
As you may have heard in the news Governor Rauner’s proposed Turnaround Agenda, an effort to plug a multi-billion dollar budget hole, includes a 50% reduction in the amount of state collected Income tax that is shared with Illinois municipalities, including Midlothian. If this proposal is passed the impact on the Village’s annual budget would be a loss of approximately $800,000 per year.
In response to this proposal local officials across Illinois have launched a Web site, ProtectMyTown.com, to rally public support to this cause. The Southwest Conference of Mayors and the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association are also part of the coalition opposing the Governor’s proposal and are fighting efforts that would take your local tax dollars to solve the state’s budget issues.
