Help Keep Local Tax Dollars Local

A proposal currently being considered in Springfield would have a lasting negative impact on the Village's budget if enacted. Governor Rauner and State legislators are considering a proposal that would reduce the amount of State-collected income taxes targeted for municipalities to help fund the State’s 2018-2019 budget deficit.

The proposal includes the continuation of a 10% reduction in revenues distributed to local municipalities through the Local Government Distributive Fund (LGDF). A continuation of the 10% reduction in LGDF distribution funding, will result in a loss of roughly $125,000 to $150,000 for vital Village services.


All Bloomingdale residents are encouraged to send a message to Governor Rauner and our State legislators that you support keeping   local tax dollars in our community to pay for essential services like adequate police and fire protection, street repairs, snow removal, and many more services that you rely on the Village to provide every day.
