Kankakee OK’s public safety fee to replenish revenues

Kankakee residents will see a $10 per month public safety fee, beginning in May, to make up the loss in revenues from the sales tax formula that is no more.

A committee gave the green light last night. The full City Council is expected to approve the proposal next Monday. The fee will show up on city water bills.

The city is also bringing back a vehicle-sticker fee.

The fee will make up the loss of $2.4 million lost in sales tax revenue due to the restructuring of state sales tax agreements by the Department of Revenue.
