VIDEO: Rep. Olsen Discusses Benefits of Consolidation Bill

This week in Springfield, State Representative David S. Olsen received nearly-unanimous support of a bill that eases the process through which Mosquito Abatement Districts may be dissolved in Illinois. SB 2543 allows mosquito abatement district boards, by a majority vote, to consolidate the abatement district into a municipality, township or county with agreement by the entity that would assume the mosquito abatement responsibilities. “With more than 7,000 individual units of government in our state, Illinois must look at ways to consolidate taxing districts so taxpayers can achieve tax relief,” said Olsen. “This is one small step that could generate some savings on tax bills.”
