Another cost for the "new city"

Oh, this looks like a real winner!

Just for the heck of it I counted the pages in the 2009 Illinois State Mandates Catalog. 149 pages. Would you want to have our new city start wading through all this? Talk about legal costs! I didn’t even waste my time reading it. Ken Dillenburg


This document satisfies the requirement outlined in the State Mandates Act (30 ILCS 805) that requires the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) to provide a State

Mandates Catalog. The State Mandates Act became effective January 1, 1981 and was created in response to a nationwide effort to slow requirements that increase local government costs without providing the means to pay for them. The Act defines a State Mandate as "any State initiated statutory or executive action that requires a local government to establish, expand, or modify its activities in such a way as to necessitate additional expenditures from local revenue."
