Couldn't Randhurst make up difference?
On Friday, Aug. 17, you ran an article about Mount Prospect entertaining the idea of raising the vehicle sticker fee from $36 to $50, raising the gas tax from 2 cents up to 5 cents, and reallocating a portion of the home rule sales tax from flooding to street repairs.
What I find odd is in the business section on the very same day, you ran another article about Randhurst celebrating its 50th year after a $150 million dollar transformation that will pump new revenue into Mount Prospect.
Randhurst was a ghost town for over 10 years. Clearly, there will be a great deal of new revenue after bringing Randhurst back from the dead. Maybe the trustees can give residents a break and wait to see how Randhurst does before raising fees and taxes. I know my family is not the only one that could use a break.
