St. Charles attorney Tim Dwyer asked property owners associations and businesses on the eastern side of Wonder Lake if they would like to join in protesting excessive taxation by the Harrison Grade School District.
Those that took up his offer will be getting their share of a refund amounting to $123,071.54.
No property owners association decided to join the suit, so homeowners won’t be getting refund checks.
When asked about the reason the District agree to the refund, Board President Karen Parks told McHenry County Blog:
“We adjusted what we had been doing, which was not correct, so we righted what was wrong.”
Last November Dwyer filed suit, pointing out that District 36 had more than enough funds in the bank to finance the function for over two years.
The Transportation Fund had three times the average amount spent in the previous three years.
