Local Option Income Tax
Tuesday's 4-3 preliminary vote on an income tax for Lake County should not be seen as an opening salvo against the county's taxpayers. Rather, it's a step toward coming to grips with reality.
GARY │ The Gary City Council passed a resolution Tuesday in support of a local option income tax in Lake County.
INDIANAPOLIS | A powerful state senator has threatened to eliminate the $10 million in annual state funding for the Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority unless Lake County enacts an income tax.
In 2000, the Regional Transportation Authority was formed to build an efficient transportation system for Lake County. With its location near Lake Michigan, the Gary airport, access to commuter trains and a bus system, Lake County should be an unparalleled transportation center.
CROWN POINT | Lake County bus agencies planning an express route to the county government center to collect new taxpayer subsidies are likely to meet a veto roadblock.
HAMMOND | In what board members and patrons called "a heartbreaking decision," the Hammond Public Library Board of trustees voted unanimously Tuesday to close the city's two remaining library branches Nov. 1.
The Merrillville Town Council's support of a county income tax raises anew the question of whether it's time for Lake County to become the last county in Indiana to impose it. The answer to that is, um, well, maybe.
