Did that headline wake you up?  If not, KEEP READING

ATTENTION RESIDENTS of RIVER FOREST!  On the ballot on Tuesday, Nov. 2 you will be asked to vote on a sales tax increase.  The increase of 1% will put the sales tax at 9.5%, which is equivalent to Oak Park

So, far so good, huh...seems ok, seems like it would be a good way to close our revenue gap, however, there are MANY more issues at hand. There has been almost no discussion of this issue in the newspaper and unless you are a regular attendee of Village meetings you will have no idea what those issues are.  Hope is coming! 

The River Forest Service Club, an organization dedicated to thoughtful discussion of issues, has put together a forum on Wednesday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. at Lincoln Elementary School. Please consider attending so that you can fully appreciate all of the issues at hand, and make an informed decision in the voting booth!
