DuPage County FY2006 Proposed Budget: Analysis and Recommendations

November 20, 2005

The Civic Federation supports DuPage County's FY2006 budget and property tax increase because the County has reduced spending by 20% since 2002, and has held the line on property tax for 10 years. The Civic Federation cautions against any future policy of relying on property tax increases as the first line of attack for balancing the budget, and urges the County to improve its budget transparency.
