Mayor John Ostenburg: Illinois Withholding Funds From Municipalities Is Illegal (Audio)

Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Mayor John Ostenburg of the Village of Park Forest had some choice words for the state of Illinois, and Gov. Bruce Rauner in particular. Just prior to the village board passing unanimously (2 members absent) a "Resolution Urging Illinois State Leaders to Release Non-General Fund Revenues Payable to Local Governments," Ostenburg had the following to say (above).

His remarks include mention that what the state of Illinois is doing in withholding funds collected by the state for specific uses by municipalities is illegal. Illinois will likely face lawsuits from municipalities . . .
