This week the House Local Government Committee heard testimony on House Bill 5160, a bill that would allow a local unit of government the option of contracting with the county treasurer to administer tax collection.
The bill allows an agreement to let the county collect taxes, and the agreement would have to be approved by the governing body of the city, village or township.
We anticipate a vote on this legislation next week.
