Crystal Lake Elementary School Doesn’t Know How Much Democrats’ Proposed Pension Shift from State to Real Estate Taxpayer Might Cost
I have to say I am disappointed that Crystal Lake District 47 has no idea of how much it might cost to shift the financing of teacher pensions from state taxpayers to local taxpayers.
In a Freedom of Information Request, I asked for the ““estimated increase in local taxes in total and by home if teacher pensions have to be paid by property taxes, as being considered by the General Assembly.”
“District 47 does not possess records containing the information you are requesting.”
Wouldn’t you think the administration and school board might be interested in that number, even if the plan is no longer under active consideration?
