MacGregor talks budgets at City Council

State Representative Peter MacGregor visited the regular meeting of the Rockford City Council on Monday, April 11. He explained to council and audience members where the state budget process was and the City’s likelihood of receiving a share of state revenue funding. MacGregor advised that municipalities are more likely to receive funding if they have a plan, and guessed the City of Rockford may get two-thirds of the funding received last year. He also talked about the probability of the Snyder administration eliminating personal property tax. According to City Manager Michael Young, eliminating personal property tax would devastate the City budget.
