The City of St. Charles has joined other municipalities in urging Springfield to restore local revenue payments, known as the Local Government Distributive Fund (LGDF). The State promised 10 percent of total income tax collections to municipalities on a per capita basis. But in recent years, the State has reduced the LGDF to 6.06 percent. In St. Charles, LGDF accounts for 8 percent of our annual operating budget. If you would like to help restore this funding to St. Charles, contact your legilslators.
