One issue not mentioned in The Watchdogs' report is what the effect of the property tax increase will have on renters, since most owners of rental property will pass along the increase to their tenants.

It should be an interesting summer as soon as the tax bills get delivered. You can see the entire article in the Sun-Times here.
