District 204 Tax Levy Approved

At last night’s District 204 meeting, the board approved a tax levy of $292.1 million. This represents an increase of 3.9 percent over last year’s levy, but new construction and rising property values means that the average homeowner will only see about a 2.1 percent increase in what they’re paying to the district. At 84 percent of the district’s total revenue, local property taxes are its most reliable source of income. This levy is the final version of the tentative levy approved at the November 13 board meeting.
