Statewide Update—Dec. 15, 2010

Editor’s Note: The BGA Think Tank’s “Statewide Update” is a daily summary of policy and government news from around the state. Each morning we scan news outlets from Rockford to Belleville and bring you the headlines that influence policy makers across the state.

  • Trib Local, Downers Grove—Council to voters: You decide on local term limits: “Voters will get to decide if Downers Grove elected officials should have term limits imposed upon them during the upcoming April 5 election, under a resolution approved by the village council.”
  • Southtown Star, Opinion—Businessman runs to abolish office“Staehlin has the right idea. Get rid of the township school board.  If that happens, Bertrand’s lawsuit and the resulting mess would have accomplished something meaningful.”
  • Rockford Register Star—Roscoe trustee candidates will remain on ballot“The board ruled that while the two made significant enough errors in their nomination petitions to be stricken from the ballot, an error in the objection to the petitions ensured that their names will remain on the ballot.”
  • Southtown Star—Oak Forest aldermen okay higher tax levy“The Oak Forest City Council on Tuesday night approved a 5 percent increase in the city’s 2010 property tax levy — or $353,000 — to an estimated $7.42 million.”
