The horrific State policies that led to people fleeing Illinois are now local. Government must have more and more of your money because they have more and more things they MUST do.
Actually, those things don’t need to be done, but progressive Democrats need to control your life because they are so much smarter than you. Local people are no longer allowed to just live their life, chances are inspectors from the City of Bloomington will pay you a visit for some perceived violation of City Code they suddenly discovered when it hasn’t been enforced for decades.
I saw pictures on-line of a boat dock at Lake Bloomington the City started destroying and never finished. That’s how progressive government works. They involve themselves in everything and end up doing nothing well. Every additional dollar they steal from you is a dollar less you have to spend. Tax revenue will continue to decline because of it.
It was really nice of the City to devote an entire web page to all the tax increases going into effect on May 1st. Of course, they even screwed it up: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/Components/News/News/5865/18?backlist=%2fgovernment%2fdepartments%2fpublic-works
