If you complain about paying taxes, then be quiet and enjoy. The cost of everything will always go up. They pay for police fire water sewers roads maintenance schools, EPA make sure the food u eat is safe, water too. They provide money to rotect our country although Trump will fix it all. Believe him because he hears things...

Please do not comment on the fire dept. if you are unaware of how they run. Out of Willow Springs fire house Tri-State runs an ALS (Paramedic ) Engine with 3 guys. The closest ambulance from Tri State would come from 88th/Madison, Burr Ridge. Not 83 and I 55.
