For the next five years, cash-strapped DuPage County, Illinois, would receive about 15 million dollar of the roughly 30 million dollar of sales tax revenues collected annually by the DuPage Water Commission under a compromise announced on May 23, 2003 that preserves the commission. Seeking to avoid a county-wide tax increase, a representative for DuPage County Board chairman Robert Schillerstrom approached the leaders of the mayoral group several months ago about tapping a portion of the flush commission's sales taxes or 190 million dollar in reserve accounts to subsidize county's operations.
