PEORIA -- A decision in Springfield is cutting more money from Peoria and Tazewell Counties budgets.
The counties will no longer be receiving money from the Personal Property Replacement Tax.
That tax brings in more than $150,000 for Tazewell County and more than $700,000 for Peoria County.
The Tazewell County Treasurer Mary Burress said more departments will suffer as the counties try to make up for the lost revenue. "It's your school districts, so it's our children, so it's the school districts, it's the parks, it's the cities. We have 182 taxing bodies in Tazewell County, it's going to hit over 100 of them," she said.
Burress is urging voters and local government to be more vocal to lawmakers.
