Board OKs reduced levy
PRAIRIE GROVE – The School District 46 board voted Tuesday night to reduce its property tax levy by $52,308, to $9,966,774, and offered a public hearing on the amount, but there were no takers.
Under Illinois’ tax cap law, taxing bodies are required to hold a “truth in taxation” hearing if the levy request reflects an increase of 5 percent or more from the previous year. The new levy is a decrease of 0.52 percent from 2011.
The board decided to have the hearing “just to give people a chance to talk about it,” said Andy Searle, district business manager.
