DeKalb city workers lay down asphalt and repair potholes on Knolls Avenue on Feb. 27, 2014. Gov. Bruce Rauner’s proposal to cut the Local Government Distributive Fund, which is used for public safety, roads and public works, would leave the city of DeKalb with $2.2 million, about half of what it receives now, in Fiscal Year 2016.
