Government A Home Rule Community , which means taxes can be raised without voter approval. Local politicians can protect their salaries and lavish, gold-plated pensions, and even increase their own benefits without voter approval, and they take full advantage. It is legalized theft. The Village Manager (who really runs the village , into the ground if you ask residents) , President ( no more than a puppet ) & Trustees have an attitude of entitlement. They line their pockets with taxpayer money , while ignoring village problems of tainted water supplies and dead trees. They have an eleven thousand dollar travel ( personal vacation) budget . Taxes have been raised twice in 2014 due to fiscal irresponsibility. Merchants , weary of demands for bribes and kickbacks have left in droves. These administrators could never survive in the private sector.
