District 25 Proposes 4.7 Percent Tax Levy Increase

Arlington Heights School District 25 is proposing property tax increase, the Chicago Tribune reports.

District 25 is proposing a 4.7 percent tax levy increase, which is 35 cents above the current rate, the Chicago Tribune reports. With the increase, the tax rate would be $3.45 per $100 of equalized assessed value, and would bring $55,736,858 into the district. 

According to the Tribune, the total budget is at $72 million. A public hearing on the levy is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7:15 p.m. at Dryden Elementary School, 722 S. Dryden Place

Why are they asking for an increase when they are sitting on $62 million of reserves which is 86% of their budget? They could almost go a full year without collecting taxes. Seems a little overkill. They are not in any financial problems that would warrant an increase.

Recent school board meeting numbers indicated the district's budget was balanced with an excess of funds this year. David Page, president of the school board/ financial advisor/ recent senate candidate, himself boasted about the fantastic job he did making sure the district finances should be in perfect shape. I must be confused, is this a joke?
