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.
