Cook County president touts more aggressive marketing of south suburbs

Kristi DeLaurentiis, Lansing director of planning and development, had asked about providing incentives for businesses to stay on the Illinois side of the border with Indiana.

DeLaurentiis said there are tax differential hurdles to go along with Northwest Indiana officials recruiting Illinois businesses on a daily basis. She asked how municipal governments can partner with county government to make staying in Illinois more attractive….

…Preckwinkle said she was happy to have a “sub-regional entity” like the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association to work with.

“(The SSMMA) have been a real Godsend for us in county government,” she said. “In addition to Chicago, there are 132 other municipalities in Cook County. It’s very hard to connect with 130, 132 other mayors, city managers, leaders.”
