Woodbridge calls on residents to protest proposed budget cuts

By Mark Reccek | Apr 27, 2015

Woodbridge

Woodbridge, Illinois, residents are being urged to protest a proposed reduction in revenue that the village receives from the Local Government Distributive Fund (LGDF), or the state income tax.

In his February budget address, Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner proposed a 50 percent reduction in revenue from the LGDF. 

The money provides for such services as proactive policing, the ability to address capital projects such as maintaining water and sewer systems, and maintaining the quality of roads.

In a post on the village's website, Woodbridge government leaders said they believe income tax dollars should be returned to the communities that provide local services to individuals who pay for them. They also encouraged residents to sign a letter to the governor and state legislators protesting the proposed cuts. 

Residents may visit www.protectmytown.com to sign the letter.
