The Illinois Lieutenant Governor, Evelyn Sanguinetti, chaired the Local Government Consolidation and Unfunded Mandates Task Force. The Task Force included, but was not limited to, members of the General Assembly, County Boards, Township government, School Boards, Chamber of Commerce, etc. Their 406 page report entitled, "Delivering Efficient, Effective and Streamlined Government to Illinois Taxpayers" was submitted to the Governor and the public on December 17, 2015. This report was completed wtih support and assistance from the Northern Illinois University, Center for Governmental Studies. The report identifies a myriad of suggestions, issues and some best practices. ILEAS is proud to report that we were highlighted in the report on pages 48-51 in the chapter entitled "Local Consolidation and Resource Sharing Examples." The report summarizes what ILEAS is and how it saves local governments money and increases their effectiveness when it comes to the delivery of law enforcement services. MABAS is also included in the same chapter. This is another example of ILEAS being recognized for its efficiency and effective work done to support local government in Illinois!
