Officials discuss shutting down Belleville Township

Posted: Updated:

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) – The Belleville Township is collecting tax dollars, but residents are not getting much in return, which is why officials will meet Tuesday to discuss shutting it down.

The township sits within the city limits of Belleville, and does not take care of roads, sewers, or mange a police department. In fact, majority of the tax payer dollars go to administrators.

In a move designed to cut costs, the city council is considering an ordinance that would shut down the township.

The council will meet at 3 p.m. to discuss the ordinance.
