Norridge Taxpayers Need To Repeal Home Rule To Curtail Out Of Control Taxation by Village Government

As Norridge Improvement Party regime leader James Chmura flees from being Village President effective June 30th, he has proposed a Village property tax levy for 2020 of $2.1 million.

That’s a 32% increase from 2019’s $1.6 million, which itself was a 35% increase over 2018’s $1.2 million levy.

Norridge taxpayers need to consider a referendum to repeal Norridge Home Rule powers.

The Village levies property taxes under it’s “home rule” authority, which does not require a referendum for increases beyond the rate of inflation.

Village trustees rubber stamped Chmura’s last tax increase budget without a single comment… as per usual.

Chmura will leave office in 2019 with the Village property tax levy 110% higher than it was when he took office in 2013.

The tax levy will not happen until after a formal hearing is held later in the year, followed by another Village board vote. The likelihood of Norridge Improvement Party ( What Improvement ?) politicians opposing it? Pretty slim.

One thing’s for certain – Norridge taxpayers will be digging deeper into their wallets to clean up James Chmura’s mess which has been stupidly supported by the Trustees.

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the the universe. – Albert Einstein

Clearly the elected officials of Norridge cannot be trusted with “Home Rule” taxation powers. The residents need to vote on a referendum to repeal “Home Rule”. Repealing “Home Rule” will ensure all future real estate tax increases would be voted on directly by the taxpayers in a referendum, not by tax crazed and power hungry trustees.
