Fox Lake Opposes Assembly Bill

7/8/11 – The Fox Lake City Council has approved a resolution that opposes a bill in the legislature that would prohibit municipalities from adding unpaid utility bills to a property owner’s tax bill. City Administrator Bill Petracek says the law would hamper the city in collecting delinquent water and sewer bills. Petracek says going through a collection agency is a costly process in both time and money. He says similar bills have been presented in the legislature before but none have passed
