In order to pass a balanced budget for fiscal year 2018/2019, Village of Northbrook Trustees took action to raise new revenue to plug a projected deficit. The approximate $94 million budget includes an increase in the sales tax and an increase in ambulance fees as well as sewer and water rates.
At the March 20 budget hearing, Village Trustees voted to implement an Administrative Adjudication program.
