Lake County Board Chairman recognized in Governor's Consolidation and Unfunded Mandate Report
Jan 5, 2016 10:44 AM - A new report issued by a State task force includes 27 recommendations for streamlining local government through consolidation and eliminating state mandates. The list includes a number of specific measures brought forward by Lake County that could save taxpayers millions of dollars annually. Shortly after Gov. Rauner issued the Executive Order creating the Task Force last year, Lake County Board Chairman Aaron Lawlor sent a memo to the task force and subsequently provided testimony detailing mandates that could be reconsidered, as well as opportunities for consolidation and other efficiencies.
