County Executive Larry Walsh proposes $551 million budget for Will County

Author: Editor

Will County Executive Larry Walsh proposed a balanced $551 million budget, a lower property tax rate and further consolidation of government services in 2018, in his annual budget address during Thursday's county board meeting.

It reflects flat revenues, the reduction of $2.4 million in state funds, and an increase of $300,000 for salaries but not the added costs of a new five-year bargaining agreement with the 750 employees in the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 1028, which was approved at this meeting, according to the executive. 

The new contract is expected to the cost an additional $2.2 million in its first year, which is spread across all county departments, Walsh said later.

Author: Editor

By its very title, the Will County Community Friendly Freight Mobility Plan sounds like an "oxymoron," but the 238-page document does attempt to balance the needs of economic development with residents' quality of life, officials said.

The final draft of the long-awaited plan was presented to the county board's Executive Committee Thursday, and may be formally approved by the full board at its meeting this Thursday.
