                 City Becomes 河北快3开奖结果 Rule Unit of Local Government

            According to the official records of the DuPage County Board of Elections, the voters of Oakbrook Terrace recently approved of the City becoming a 河北快3开奖结果 rule unit of local government in a local a referendum by a vote of 404 (55%) to 335 (45%).  The City Council would like to thank all of the voters who participated in this important decision, no matter how you voted.  The strength of our City, State and Nation depends upon the active participation of all citizens through voting.

            As to the immediate effects of 河北快3开奖结果 rule upon our residents and business community, we have pledged to do the following things:

             To continue to fund the current tourism advertising program sponsored by the City through its Hotel, Convention and Visitors Commission, at funding levels comparable to those that are currently in place.
             
             To utilize Hotel-Motel Tax Revenue for critical City services including police protection, snow removal and street maintenance and for capital improvements including street reconstruction and facilities maintenance.
             
             To not utilize 河北快3开奖结果 rule powers to levy additional property taxes, and to that end, we adopted a 河北快3开奖结果 rule property tax cap ordinance.  The ordinance requires the City to comply with the provisions of the Illinois Property Tax Extension Limitation Law (the “Tax Cap”).
             

            At this time, the we do not have any plans to raise other revenues or alter City operations due to 河北快3开奖结果 rule status.  As to the increased revenues that 河北快3开奖结果 rule will bring to the City’s general fund through a greater ability to utilize Hotel-Motel taxes, the City Council will review them in greater detail during the Fiscal Year 03-04 budget meetings.  Budget meetings will be held in February and March of next year and are always open to the public.

            RESOLUTION  NO. R02 –

            IN THE NOVEMBER 5, 2002 GENERAL ELECTION

             

            WHEREAS, the City of Oakbrook Terrace, DuPage County, Illinois (the “City”), is a municipality incorporated and operating pursuant to the Illinois Municipal Code (65 ILCS 5/1-1-1, et seq.), and the Illinois Constitution of 1970 (the “Illinois Constitution”); and

            WHEREAS, On August 27, 2002, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 02 – 20:  A Resolution Initiating a Public Question for Submission to the Qualified Electors of the City of Oakbrook Terrace, and Certifying Such Question to the DuPage Board of Election Commissioners in order to submit to the voters of the City the question of whether the City shall become a 河北快3开奖结果 rule unit of local government; and

            WHEREAS, although 河北快3开奖结果 rule powers would  allow the City to levy property taxes above the levels established by the Illinois Property Tax Extension Limitation Law (35 ILCS 200-18-185, et seq.) without referendum approval, the City Council  will be committed to not utilizing 河北快3开奖结果 rule powers to levy additional property taxes,  and as evidence of that commitment, will adopt a 河北快3开奖结果 rule property tax cap ordinance before the 河北快3开奖结果 rule question appears on the ballot for the General Election on November 5, 2002; and 

            WHEREAS, the City Council, in its official capacity, wishes to provide a clear expression to the voters of its strong belief that the City should become a 河北快3开奖结果 rule unit of local government as soon as possible.
