Governor Announces Town Meetings To Share Illinois Tollway’s Proposed 2004 Budget
Meetings Heed Reform Mandate for Transparency

DOWNERS GROVE, IL – Governor Rod R. Blagojevich today encouraged Illinois Tollway customers and all citizens in Northern Illinois to participate in regional budget meetings, scheduled for next month, to get information and share feedback on the Tollway’s tentative 2004 budget.
“For the first time in anyone’s memory, the Illinois Tollway is seeking input from customers and residents in its 12-county region to help steer the direction of the agency for its new fiscal year,” said Blagojevich. “The Tollway has demonstrated a new spirit of openness as part of our mission to reform the agency and to ensure that tolls paid by Tollway customers are spent wisely.”
Illinois Tollway Executive Director Jack Hartman said the 2004 budget continues to do more with less. “Through cost cutting and careful management, we have been able to develop a balanced budget for the year ahead, while at the same time re-deploying and focusing resources on initiatives that progress the Governor’s reform agenda.”
The Town Meetings on the Tollway’s Budget are scheduled from 7 - 9 p.m. on:
