Kankakee County 'road map' to direct finances

The Kankakee County Board is busy trying to figure out what’s next --- after voters said ‘No’ to a public safety tax in last week’s election.

Board Chairman Andy Wheeler was quite surprised it was the rural voters who denied the tax...which would have generated monies for increased police protection.

Wheeler said a three-year budget plan will have to be followed closely. The whole picture will be reviewed through 2020 with hopes of keeping all departments onboard.
