With attendance at the first session in at Congress Park School in Brookfield September on the low side, LaGrange-Brookfield School District 102 has added a fourth public forum regarding the upcoming property tax referendum in November.
The school district has two more forums planned to answer questions and present information on the referendum, which the school board voted unanimously to place on the Nov. 8 ballot this summer.
The school board is asking residents of the district, which includes the southwest quarter of Brookfield, to increase the tax limiting rate to allow the district to collect $3 million more annually in property taxes.
Officials have estimate that, if successful, the impact to homeowners in the district would be $112 per every $100,000 of a home’s market value.
Both forums are from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and members of the District 102 board and administration will be present.
The remaining forums will be on Thursday, Oct. 6 at the LaGrange Park Public Library District, 555 N. LaGrange Road in La Grange Park. and on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at St. Francis Xavier Parish’s Joyce Hall, 124 Spring Ave. in LaGrange.
Questions regarding the meetings or the referendum can be directed to Superintendent Kyle Schumacher at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information is also posted on the District website at www.dist102.k12.il.us.
