Newly elected chairman: Sales tax hike could be rejected, delayed by board

Despite Iroquois County voters approving a ballot measure last month to raise the county’s sales tax by a quarter-cent to help fund public-safety operations, there is no guarantee that the tax hike will go into effect anytime soon.
One day after being elected chairman of the county board, rural Buckley resident John Shure said it is actually possible the board could reject the sales tax increase or delay it for months or even years.

“It is up to the county board to affirm or adopt (the sales tax increase), but before we can do that, I think we need to get more information on it,” Shure said Tuesday. “That’s something that we’re in the process of doing right now, so it’s hard to say where it will end up or what the outcome will be.
“We were authorized to impose a public safety tax in the county of a quarter of 1 percent, but the word ‘authorize’ is key — it doesn’t mean we have to do it,” Shure continued. “I guess we wouldn’t really ‘reject’ it, but we could do nothing or we could do something 10 years from now under that authorization. There’s no deadline on when that authorization needs to be done. Now, if we want to get it into effect as soon as possible, then we’d need to get it done no later than April. That’s kind of our deadline to get the paperwork done and sent to Springfield.”
The county’s existing sales tax rate is 6.25 percent. The quarter-cent increase would not apply to all merchandise sold in the county. Among items exempt from the tax would be unprepared food, titled vehicles and prescription medication.
Shure said concerns about the tax hike’s impact on retailers in Iroquois County is being explored as part of the fact-finding mission currently under way. Some are concerned that the county’s residents will travel to other counties with lower sales tax rates to do their shopping.
“If they’re spending their money elsewhere, in a sense that’s robbing their home county of that revenue,” Shure said.
To address such concerns, Shure said one thing that needs to happen before the tax increase is implemented is creating a “greater awareness among residents in this county to do their shopping in this county.”
“Most of the residents don’t understand where their sales taxes go,” Shure noted. “They think it goes to Springfield and they never see it again. But there’s a part of it that goes back to the county. ... If people would shop in this county, the merchants could carry a wider range of merchandise and there would be more jobs created. It’s something we need to address.”
Getting the word out about the benefits of shopping locally will be the responsibility of a multitude of community groups, including the county board, local government bodies and chambers of commerce, and the Iroquois Economic Development Association, Shure said.
“I think anybody and everybody would have some part to play in it,” Shure said. “But exactly how that information would be disseminated, we haven’t decided that yet. It’s something that’s really in its early stages.”
Sheriff Derek Hagen hopes that by adding a sales tax specifically for the purpose of funding public safety, the sheriff’s office, as well as the county’s dispatch center and Emergency Services & Disaster Agency, can avoid having to ask the county board to move revenue out of the general fund each year to assist with the funding of equipment purchases, staffing and other needs that arise.
Hagen said one thing the additional funds could be used for is the replacement of squad cars. Personnel could also be hired for the sheriff’s office. The dispatch center in Watseka — which Hagen said has been “struggling” financially — could also potentially use some of the revenue from the sales tax toward the funding of its personnel or equipment.

Shure replaces Anderson
Via a split vote, Shure was appointed chairman over the only other board member nominated for the county’s top leadership post — Donna Crow of Milford. Eleven board members voted to appoint Shure, while eight voted for Crow. Board member Russell Bills of Watseka abstained from the vote.
