State of Illinois to release funds to White County

The State of Illinois will be paying its bills, at least to White County in the form of salary reimbursement for the State’s Attorney, Public Defender, and the Supervisor of Assessments.

According to State’s Attorney Denton Aud, the Illinois Department of Revenue has agreed to release funds owed White County from the Personal Property Tax Fund.  Aud said that he received a call from the Attorney General’s office on Friday afternoon.  In addition, Aud stated the State would pay other counties that had filed lawsuits.

Aud filed a lawsuit on behalf of the County on Thursday.  He told WROY/WRUL News that the lawsuit would be dismissed when the funds are received.  Aud said that he is hopeful that the payment is a positive sign of things to come in Springfield.
