The City of Wilmington is committed to giving our residents access to information
on how taxpayer's money is spent. Here you will find all
documents required by law in addition to the financial data recommended by the
Illinois Policy Institute for maximum government transparency.
Questions regarding the finances for the City of Wilmington can be directed to City Accountant,
Kim Doglio at 815 476-2175 ext 225 email@example.com
Required By Law
The basis of this Act is to make available the annual salaries of municipal employees that have a total compensation package greater than $75,000. The City of Wilmington has recently decided to make compensation information available for ALL municipal employees.
Public Act 98-0738 - for all Municipalities (effective January 1, 2015)
State Statute requires that each fiscal year all municipalities must complete an audit, posting the information within 60 days after its completion.
Additional Transparency Recommendations
Every year the Mayor, City Administrator and Council work closely with the City Accountant to create a balanced budget that takes into account all projected revenue sources and plans for all necessary payments and expenditures.
Starting in 2017, we are pulling the Check Registers for each pay period between meetings out of the Agenda/Board Packets to allow for easy viewing of expenditures.
Wilmington has employees that belong to two unions: MAP for the Police Department & AFSCME for other Municipal employees including the Clerk's Office, Water Department and Public Works. The City Administrator and City Engineer are bargained positions each with their own contract. Contracts also become available from time to time for large projects. All projects over $25,000 MUST go out for Bid. When this occurs, the City will post a Bid Notice with instructions and project details on the Reports & Releases page with the most recent also appearing on the Home page.
Disclose tax rates for all major revenue sources of the local government’s own taxing power including property, sales, telecommunication, hotel, etc.
