July 1st came and went and McHenry County Blog didn’t mention that Mayor Aaron Shepley’s and his city council’s 75% city sales tax hike was one year old.
Newspaper junkie that I am, I have been reading two weeks of accumulated dead trees at McHenry Marlin swim meets.
I finally ran across the Chicago Tribune for July 1st.
And a scathing editorial about Todd Stroeger’s sales tax that took effect the same day as Shepley’s.
The city council hiked the city sales tax 75% after giving the public only one week’s notice.
It was right before the Democratic Party RTA sales tax hike took effect. The bill was passed with the help of three DuPage County Republicans seeking statewide office.
