Very wise of you to recognize the non tax income stream a project like the 'plex produces and it'sRead Morep ositive impact on the local taxpayer! Can you believe that there's a whole group of like 6 people out there doing everything they can to scuttle the plan? In the name of "tax savings" VOL should rely primarily on their property owners tax levy???? Willfully paid user fees are bad???? Respectfully Bartholomew Sylvester Buster III

I'd like to educate myself again on the whole subject. If we grow enough we will get itRead Moreanyway...wh ile we have a choice however we should be informed. One caution I had was the temptation of a Board to go for the gold and impose a property transfer tax. In essence then, every time you sell or buy a property in Lemont the price would be inflated by that tax. The seller will build it into the price! It's human nature to want to do so. Next comes your real-estate tax bill where in the County Assessor, who doesn't chase sales info (they say) says your property is worth more, based on that sale price, and therefore taxed more. It kinda creates an upward tax spiral. This is the kind of deep thinking it takes in voting these things in in the first place. For that matter voting anything in...even a Board member is a critical decision folks take to lightly. We are lucky here, so far, and have a deep thinking Board. So far.

Somehow I doubt that "the party picks up the bill." The cost for the plane and personnelRead Moret o guard this guy are well beyond the few bucks he gets pledged at these fund raisers. To the BIGGER point however...why the hell isn't he in his office solving problems and getting, via leadership, the other clowns to do something positive for the country. He is a screwoff!
