Help Our Community Restore Local Funding
The Village of Burr Ridge is joining communities across the state in urging Springfield to restore local funding for essential services and to fulfill the State’s agreement with municipal governments.
The Local Government Distributive Fund (LGDF) is a portion of Illinois income taxes, paid by our local residents and businesses, that are collected by the State and redistributed back to municipalities on a per capita basis. State legislators have an opportunity to restore LGDF in 2022, so that municipalities across Illinois receive critical funding to provide essential services in the community. This could also help reduce the reliance on property and other taxes without increasing income taxes for our residents and businesses. In summary, restoration to 10% would result in an additional $250,000 in income taxes returned annually to the Village!
You can help by making your voice heard! Please contact your State Senator and Representative and let them know that you support restoring promised LGDF funding this year. Contact information for your local representatives can be found at here.
