  1. Maybe taxpayers are ticked off about all the legislative pension hikes to underfunded police and fire pensions.

    Or maybe taxpayers of tired of police and fire chiefs receiving a pension and salary simultaneously, being the way the various pension laws in Illinois are written.

    The Spring Grove police pension fund is 36% funded, with an unfunded liability in 2013 of $3,332,424.

    36% funding is awful, reflecting very poor fiscal discipline.

  2. Note, not all police and fire chiefs receive a pension and salary simultaneously.
