Tax districts are required to place “black border” ads in the paper to notify residents if they plan to increase their tax levies more than 5%.
Cary Grade School District 26 is not increasing its levy 5% or more, but its Board still put such an ad in the Northwest Herald:
Reading it, I was surprised that an add that was not required was in the paper.
The whole levy is increasing less than half of the 5% increase threshold at which a “black border” ad is required.
The D26 tax take will increase 2.41% next year.
Operating spending is going up 3.01%, while payment for debt service is decreasing 1.91%.
The meeting will be Monday, November 19th, at the Cary Junior High School at 2101 Crystal Lake Road.
