It’s incredible how politicians can jump on and spend the proceeds from the new Lake County income tax!
$3.2 million of the new county income tax the cities will receive could have gone to fix local infrastructure needs. The extension of the South Shore won’t even start being built for six years, yet our tax dollars will go to this project and not fix our roads.
I left Illinois and moved to Indiana years ago because their taxes were too high, and here we go. With big promises come big taxes.
Many of my co-workers live in Illinois, and all they talk about after driving to work is how bad our roads are! How will the northern and eastern part of Lake County benefit from this project?
Their roads are in the worst shape and could put that tax money to better use right now.
