Naperville manager to review consolidation of Naper Settlement, library and city

Naperville manager to review consolidation of Naper Settlement, library and city

Naperville city officials looking to cut costs will study whether Naper Settlement, Naperville Public Library and the city government can share administrative offices such as finance or human resources.

Naperville City Council members recently advised City Manager Doug Krieger's office to look at whether human resources, finance, information technology and communications departments can be consolidated.

"We have three entities, all of which get a paycheck from the City of Naperville, with three separate employee policies and sets of policies. Should that change or does it make sense? We don't know the answer to that yet," Krieger said. "Whenever we have the opportunity to standardize and simplify, it always seems like that's a great thing and that is something that we are going to be evaluating."

State lawmaker to sponsor concussion legislation proposed by Naperville students

State lawmaker to sponsor concussion legislation proposed by Naperville students

A local state representative will sponsor concussion legislation advocated by two Naperville high school students.

State Rep. Stephanie Kifowit said she will work with Neuqua Valley juniors Rekha Iyer and Jash Desai, both of Naperville, in drafting a bill that better defines the procedures schools take to identify, confirm and reintegrate students with traumatic brain injuries back into an academic environment.

The push for change is a reaction to the challenges Iyer experienced when dealing with a concussion.

Here's what's in the big GOP tax plan

Here's what's in the big GOP tax plan

Washington Republicans today finally introduced their long-awaited tax-cut plan, and at first glance it is big and bold as promised, with major reductions, particularly for business. It also is likely to cause considerable controversy, with Illinois taxpayers losing the ability to deduct state and local sales and income (though not property) taxes on their federal return, and a new cap imposed on the home mortgage interest deduction.

Here's an outline of what's in the plan, as passed on by the office of Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Wheaton, who heads the tax policy subcommittee of the tax-writing House Ways & Means Committee. I hope to talk to Roskam later today.

Individual rates: There would be four brackets: 12 percent, 25 percent, 35 percent and 39.6 percent.
