Audit: Rauner budget office failed to collect $2M owed by US

SPRINGFIELD (AP) – A state audit found that Gov. Bruce Rauner’s budget office failed to collect more than $2 million in federal rebates.

The review released Tuesday found that the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget never received $2.4 million in rebates owed for payments the state makes on bond debt.

Auditor General Frank Mautino found no evidence the office tried to collect the money. Five other receipts show Illinois left an additional $183,000 combined on the table.

Roadwork on I-88 begins Monday

LYNDON – Work on phase 2 of a 9-mile, $12.4 million Interstate 88 repair project starts Monday.

Overlay will be removed and the road resurfaced from state Route 78 near Lyndon to Sand Road. Traffic will be cut to one lane in each direction.

The work is expected to be completed by mid-November.

Call the state Department of Transportation, 815-284-2271, for more information.
