Victoria Koegel suggested we “get the facts” before placing the blame of a county income tax on Commissioner Mike Repay, claiming he “saved” us from an even higher tax.

CROWN POINT | Lake County Commissioners still want back vehicles the sheriff borrowed and hasn't returned.

CROWN POINT | Lake County Commissioners voted Wednesday to borrow up to $21 million to build an E-911 countywide network and to give most of it to Motorola Solutions Inc. of Schaumburg.
