Will County approves $2.2 million levy, raises fees

Author: Editor

In a partisan vote, the Will County board approved a 2017 tax levy increase of $2.2 million — $1 million less than that proposed by County Executive Larry Walsh, D-Elwood. 

Republicans supported the levy, saying they were holding the line on taxes, and did not want to raise it by an additional $1 million.

But opposing Democrats said they wanted to make sure the county's programs, and its Health Department, were adequately funded. They also questioned where $1 million in cuts would be made in the budget.

Executive Larry Walsh Renews Call For Will County Public Building Commission's Elimination

Author: Editor

Following the release of his proposed FY 2018 budget to the Will County Board, County Executive Larry Walsh again renewed his call to eliminate the Will County Public Building Commission (PBC) despite opposition from Will County Board leadership. Walsh said this move supports the county’s continued efforts to consolidate government services and improve efficiency. 

“It has become a common theme among many of my collar county colleagues that County leaders must chart the path forward on reducing the number of governmental units, especially those that no longer serve a useful purpose,” said Walsh. “I believe the Will County PBC has served the residents of Will County well in the past but there no longer seems to be a need for this separate governmental entity. I think we should set an example by eliminating this unnecessary taxing body.”
