to 2018 budget cuts in McLean County and the State of Illinois, all McLean
County government office budgets were cut, resulting in reduced staffing.
Please be prepared for delays in processing your requests. Bring to our
attention any urgent needs so we can prioritize those requests. We may be
fortunate not to experience any lengthy delays, but we did want to alert you to
you from all the McLean County staff. We hope 2019 will offer a brighter
financial picture for us all.
