Rockland Road Construction Update 

As of December 3, 2019, all lanes are open to traffic on Rockland Road as construction has ended for the winter season. The project consists of construction on Rockland Road between Milwaukee Ave. (IL Route 21) to St. Mary’s Road.  Work will be completed in two phases (the project does not include the section at the bridge over the Des Plaines River). It is anticipated that the roadway pavement reconstruction work for both segments will be completed in 2020. In order to complete the pavement reconstruction traffic will be shifted to one-way eastbound. Westbound traffic will be detoured via IL Route 176.  Replacement of the bridge carrying Rockland Road over the Des Plaines River will be part of a future project. It is anticipated that the replacement of the bridge will occur no sooner than 2022. To learn more click here.

Non-Home Rule Sales Tax Referendum

On the March 17, 2020 Presidential Primary Ballot, the residents of the Village of Libertyville will have the opportunity to answer a question regarding  imposing a non-home rule local sales tax of 1%. The tax is equivalent to a penny per dollar on general merchandise. The local sales tax would NOT apply to medicines, titled goods, such as cars and trailers, and most groceries. If approved by voters, the additional sales tax is projected to generate approximately $2,000,000 in new revenue annually after the repeal of the Places for Eating tax. To learn more click here
