Peoria County Board Approves Budget for 2024

This evening the Peoria County Board unanimously approved Peoria County’s budget for fiscal year 2024, which is January 1-December 31, 2024. 

Highlights include:

  • No property tax increase
  • Fully funded Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (pension) obligations
  • Allocation of funds for multiple infrastructure projects including the continued construction of the Health and Human Services building, multiple road and bridge rehabilitations, Highway Department facility upgrades, Courthouse fountain and step repairs, and more. 

“The Peoria County Board prioritized capital improvements in its strategic plan,” said James C. Dillon, Peoria County Board Chairperson. “This budget reflects our commitment to that priority with heavy investments in roads and bridges, building improvements, and upgraded vehicles for the Sheriff’s Office, Highway Department, and Animal Protection Services (PCAPS). This budget does not raise property taxes, fully funds our pension obligations, and invests in the maintenance and repair of our facilities so we can continue to offer quality services to the public.”

The budget, in its proposed format, is available to view online at Changes brought forth during last night’s meeting will be reflected in the coming days.
