At its Dec. 4 meeting, the Flossmoor village board unanimously approved a measure to place on the March ballot a referendum to introduce a 1 percent village sales tax.

If approved by voters, the measure would bring the total sales tax in Flossmoor to 10 percent. It currently stands at 9 percent, with portions allotted to the state of Illinois, Cook County and the Regional Transportation Authority special tax.

“The board has discussed this at length, and the No. 1 strategic plan of the board is maintaining financial stability for the village,” said Mayor Paul . . .
