Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has called for the largest-ever collection of taxes and fees in modern Chicago history an attempt to plug the city’s $750 million budget hole, rather than making dramatic reforms to spending.

The mayor has confirmed Chicago’s budget will include the following increases, according to Crain’s Chicago Business:
  • $543 million in total property-tax increases to pay for city pension contributions, with property taxes rising by:

  • An additional $109 million in 2016
  • An additional $53 million in 2017
  • An additional $63 million in 2018
