La Salle owes park board while they wait on state payments

Posted by wlpo on March 23, 2010

Money’s tight for the City of La Salle and it has the comptroller tapping different funds to pay the bills.  The state is several months late with their income tax payments and it has comptroller JoAnne Milby waiting to pay the park board their cut of a sales tax increase approved by voters just a few years ago.
Milby says the state’s last income tax payment was $52,000 and it was for November. She’s waiting on December and January payments which total over $113,000.  In the meantime, the park board is owed $30,500.
Milby says this is the first time she’s been behind in making the park board whole but she’s confident she’ll have them paid by the end of the fiscal year, April 30.
Mayor Jeff Grove says the parks will get their money and the late payment isn’t causing the parks problems.
