Metro West urges lawmakers to address taxes, pensions
GENEVA – Pensions and taxes were at the forefront during Tuesday’s Metro West Council Legislative Breakfast, where state representatives from three counties, including Kane, weighed in on the upcoming legislative session.
Members of the Metro West Council, a conglomeration among leaders in Kane, DeKalb and Kendall counties, met at Eagle Brook Country Club in Geneva and asked legislators about their support of issues surrounding taxes and pensions.
Dave Anderson, president of the Metro West Council and village president of Elburn, urged the eight state representatives who were present to oppose House Bill 89 – a bill proposed by Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, that would limit property tax increases as home values decline. He said capping taxes would strain local government, especially in a slow economy.
