Chairman Dan Cronin said he and the rest of the DuPage County Board are striving to make county government operate like a well-run business during a recent State of DuPage County Address.
Cronin gave his remarks Jan. 8 at Seven Bridges Golf Club in Woodridge. The chambers of Westmont, Downers Grove, Woodridge and Lisle participated in the event, which was sponsored by Choose DuPage.
Much of the speech extolled the county's fiscal responsibility. By spending taxpayer dollars responsibly, he said, DuPage government could avoid raising property taxes for the sixth straight year and keep money in residents' pockets.
"If you add up the dollars that we collect at the local government level through property taxes and all the different agencies, it's an enormous amount of money that is taken out of the economy," he said.
