Property Tax Forums

Since the year 2009, the city has hosted 4 forums. Below is a short summary of each forum's discussions, along with the agendas that were posted.

In 2009, the panel of elected officials from neighboring cities, Lockport City Council, both Lockport and Homer townships, Will County officials, and state officials discussed the informational side of Property Taxes in general and educated the communities.

In 2010, the same panel discussed the possible alternatives to our Property Tax System.

In 2011, the same panel discussed Property Tax Reform and the Relief Task Force report and recommendations from a bipartisan panel of elected officials from the Illinois State General Assembly.

In 2012, the discussion focused on if our elected officials have made attempts to work with the General Assembly on task force recommendations and their results, if any.
