Advocacy Update:COOK COUNTY PARKING LOT AND GARAGE OPERATIONS TAXFrom the Government Affairs Committee
Building A Legal Defense
The BOMA/Suburban Chicago Board of Directors and its Government Affairs Committee have retained legal counsel in order to thoroughly research this issue, and to have a clear understanding of the law, the County's position, and our options.
Our legal counsel has already begun its research and will present a legal opinion to the Board of Directors within 30-45 days.
Attention From BOMA International
BOMA/Suburban Chicago has also been in contact with BOMA International. International is outraged by the County's conduct and has suggested its Industry Defense Fund might be able to offset some of our legal fees. The Industry Defense Fund "...is instrumental in giving a voice to the commercial real estate industry helping achieve critical advocacy successes. Its purpose is to ensure that adequate funds are available at the federal, state and local levels for wide-ranging advocacy issues that may impact BOMA members."
Our Commitment to Members
In addition to hiring legal counsel, coordinating with BOMA International, and working with our Lobbyist, BOMA/Suburban Chicago has actively engaged with Cook County officials, including a County Commissioner, in order to be as strategic as possible.
BOMA/Suburban Chicago is committed to helping you protect your rights and your assets! We will continue to address our concerns with Cook County officials. We will build a coalition with other organizations who share our concerns. Finally, we will work with our members and be their voice in this critical matter.
