In the article on his web site, Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Andrew Gasser explains that he is cutting the Road District levy by 5%.
Then he urges other tax districts to cut their levies:
My Challenge to Every Taxing Body in McHenry County
Obviously not every taxing body can cut five (5) percent in one year – but you can cut one (1) percent and not take the rate of inflation increase.
I challenge every taxing body to just cut one percent from their levy.
I realize not everyone can match me and there will be some over achievers but if every body just cut taxes by one (1) percent the impact on our residents would be enormous.
It is not difficult.
You just do it.
Cut your levies.
Save the endangered species that is the Illinois property owner.
They are leaving in droves.
They do not want excuses – they want results.
So give them results and cut your levies.
