I know it is mid-summer and I forgot to show the comparisons between what McHenry County’s five park districts billed property taxpayers last year and this year.
The word “extension” below is the amount that was billed taxpayers. Because the tax year is one year behind the calendar year, the 2012 extension is for bills paid in 2013.
The 2013 extension is what was paid this year.
|2012 Extension||2013 Extension||% Change|
|Barrington Hills||$52,392||$46,877||-10.53%||McH Co only|
|Huntley||$4,147,501||$3,886,349||-6.30%||McH Co only|
Filing for the April 2015 election is December 15-22, 2014. The first day for passing petitions is September 23th.
In Crystal Lake, the terms of Larry Wheeler, Debbie Gallagher and Paul Myers are up.
Myers led the fight to stabilize the Park District levy in 2012. (I did not go to the 2013 meeting, which led to the 2014 tax increase.)
