Two Schools Think Sales Taxes Not High Enough in Lake County

Ryan Pagelow of Sun Publications in Lake County reports that two large local school districts have found the little bill I wrote about a month ago.

I’ll use the reporter’s words to explain what’s happening:

”If school districts representing 51 percent of the county’s student enrollment support the tax hike, or it is supported by the Lake County Board, it will be placed on the ballot for Lake County voters to decide.”

So, if you shop at Gurnee Mills, you could help pay for Lake County schools.

Boy, did they move fast.

No district has said it won’t also propose property tax increases to finance school building or renovation, however.
