Referendum option

Municipalities are asked to place a public safety pension reform advisory referendum on the ballot for the upcoming general election in November. The referendum wording is “Shall the Illinois General Assembly and Governor take immediate steps to implement meaningful public safety pension reform which will relieve the extensive burden on local taxpayers now that the General Assembly and Governor have reformed the pension systems for all other employees?”

All referendum questions need to be approved by local village boards by August 16, so please consider taking action on the model resolution at one of your upcoming council or board meetings.
