Forsyth a hit at IML

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Village Administrator Mike Miller felt somewhat like a celebrity after recently attending the Illinois Municipal League’s annual conference.

“Forsyth is the shining star everyone is hoping to be, and they would like to have our tax revenues [from Hickory Point Mall],” Miller said. The three-day program is designed to strengthen the administration of municipal government. Miller said he attended several sessions devoted to the development of a sales tax base and the ability to attract retail outlets to the community.

“It was standing room only in each session with each community in Illinois looking to attract retailers,” he noted. He said given Forsyth’s tax structure, he came away feeling that “…everyone is out to poach our source of revenue.”
