Proposed Frankfort Sales Tax Hike Focus Of Village Forums

Author: Editor

Two special public meetings will be held before November's election to discuss the referendum to raise Frankfort's sales tax. These forums will give residents a chance to ask village officials questions about the proposed measure on the Nov. 6 ballot that could see the village's sales tax increased by 1 percent.

 

The meetings about the village's upcoming sales tax referendum will be at the Village Hall on the following days:

9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 20

6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22

Frankfort's sales tax is currently the lowest among Lincoln-Way communities at 7 percent. For comparison, Mokena's sales tax is 7.5 percent, and New Lenox, is 9 percent.

Is 2018 the 'Year of the Woman' in Will County?

Author: Editor

At the main campaign office of the Will County Democrats in Joliet, a small army of volunteers has been working the phones for the Nov. 6 election. 

Armed with sophisticated voter calling technology, headsets and plastic cups full of cheddar cheese popcorn, the volunteers on this evening were talking to residents who had requested mail-in ballots to see where they stood on the issues.

 There was one striking similarity among the vast majority of volunteers on one recent weeknight: They almost all were women.
