A press release from Voters in Action and Taxpayers United of America:
Home Rule is Home Ruin
Special Census, Home Rule and You
WOODSTOCK, IL – The Woodstock City Council has approved a special census with an eye toward certifying that the city has grown to more than 25,000 residents.
If this is true, this would make Woodstock a “Home Rule Unit” and would substantially change the rules for how the city creates or changes taxes and fees in the city.
Given that Woodstock residents pay among the highest taxes in the state, and perhaps the country, citizens were concerned and Voters In Action were engaged.
Leadership from Voters In Action reached out to Jim Tobin of Taxpayers United of America and have joined forces to present “Home Rule is Home Ruin”.
The presentation, given by Mr Tobin, will take a closer look at what changes Home Rule brings and how they will affect local taxpayers.
- Where: Woodstock Public Library, 414 W Judd St, Woodstock, IL 60098
- When: Wednesday, May 11, 7:00 PM
The public is welcome. There is no charge for the event
