Tax for county's disabled to go on ballot in April
WOODSTOCK – A proposed “377 Board” that would disburse taxes to agencies working with the developmentally and intellectually disabled now rests in the hands of McHenry County voters.
The April 9 ballot will include a referendum asking voters to approve establishing the board and create a tax levy that would add 10 cents per $100 assessed valuation to county property taxpayers’ bills. That rate would mean an increase of about $60 a year for the owner of a $200,000 home who takes the homestead exemption.
County Board members approved placing the referendum on the ballot, 20-3. Ersel Schuster, Diane Evertsen and John Hammerand voted no. Board member Robert Bless was absent.
