The City of Geneva could lose $1 million in state funding

May 28, 2015 12:17PM ● Published by Katelyn Nelson

The City of Geneva is urging residents to visit ProtectMyTown.com to voice their opposition to Illinois leaders regarding Governor Bruce Rauner’s proposal aimed at taking local revenue to fix the state’s budget problems. Attempts to take local income tax revenue from the Local Government Distributive Fund (LGDF) to close budget gaps at the state would cause Geneva to lose $1 million annually. The LGDF returns tax dollars to Illinois communities, including Geneva, to fund essential services such as police and fire protection, street maintenance and snow plowing. If the local revenue is reduced, Geneva will have to make up for the funding shortfall by cutting services. After logging on to ProtectMyTown.com, it only takes three easy steps to directly contact state officials: 1) Review the letter; 2) Fill out the contact information; and 3) Hit the “Take Action” button to complete the form. Residents can also forward and share the website through social media to their friends to join the movement. geneva.il.us
