Tom Cullerton works to return gas tax money to DuPage County
Nov 25, 2015 4:15 PM - VILLA PARK- As Villa Park residents fill up for the holidays, they are paying thousands of dollars in state gas taxes, but for the past five months municipalities haven't received that money to help pay for road salt, snow plow repair and patching pot holes and all other road maintenance. "Governor Rauner is holding your money hostage," said State Senator Tom Cullerton, a DuPage County Democrat who also represents Villa Park in the Illinois Senate. "Last weekend, DuPage County received over seven inches of snow. Imagine what will happen to our communities when we don't have the money to put salt on our roads and keep snow plows running."
