Kane County has done McHenry County one better.
Under the leadership of outgoing County Board Chairman Karen McConnaughay, the Kane County Board passed a levy that was the same as last year’s extension.
Because there is additional assessed valuation, that means the county part of the tax bill will decrease.
McHenry County, on the other hand, has levied to take the new growth.
That means taxes should remain constant for the McHenry County portion of next year’s tax bill.
Better than last year, when the County Board taxed to the max.
But not as good as taxpayers will be treated in Kane County.
McConnaughay is running unopposed for State Senator.
