Protesters target DuPage County's proposed stormwater utility fee
Signs reading "Stop the Church Tax" and "No Rain Tax" bobbed up and down North County Farm Road before a DuPage County Board meeting Tuesday in protest of the recently signed bill that gives the county authority to charge property owners a stormwater utility fee.
A standing room crowd crammed into the DuPage County Board room to voice their opinions on the bill. At several points during the meeting, Board Chairman Dan Cronin commented on the protesters' cheers and applause, asking them to respect decorum.
During the meeting's public comments, local resident Tom Sutton said the bill was rushed too quickly.
