As the discussion on township consolidation continues, Legislative & Intergovernmental Affairs (LIA) Chairman, Nick Provenzano has announced that he has invited Senator Pam Althoff to attend next Friday’s LIA meeting to discuss, among other things, the possibility of introducing legislation regarding three outlined concerns related to township consolidation. These included:
- providing a choice of a higher or lower tax levy in consolidated township (currently, statute requires the higher levy amount);
- providing a broader choice for the handling of existing debt in consolidated townships; and
- addressing the 126 square mile limitation on consolidated township.
The meeting is scheduled for Friday, October 9, at 8:15 AM McHenry County Administration Building, Conference Room A.
