2016 Elgin Capital Improvements

Investing in Elgin: Your tax dollars at work

Investing in Elgin logo

The city council recently approved a $25 million bond issuance that will make critical investments in Elgin’s roads and underground infrastructure like sewer and water main. This bond issuance is in addition to the nearly $22.4 million in projects that carry over into the 2016 construction season, such as the completion of the South Street project that connects Longcommon Parkway to Randall Road. You’ll notice signs throughout the city identifying projects that are part of the “Investing in Elgin.” When you see those signs, know that it’s your tax dollars that made each project possible.
