Next Minooka 201 School Board Meeting and Proposed Tax Levy

The next meeting of the Minooka CCSD 201 school board is Wednesday, November 18, 2015. The Committee of the Whole Meeting starts at 6:00 p.m. in the board room at the Minooka Primary Center located at 305 Church Street in Minooka. The Committee of the Whole Meeting will be followed by the regular Board Meeting at 7 p.m. Each of the meetings is open to the public, and everyone is encouraged to attend. You can find the agenda for each of the meetings here.

Information for the Committee of the Whole Meeting and the regular Board Meeting can be found here.

One item of note that will be discussed at both meetings is the proposed tax levy for fiscal year 2016.  The information regarding the proposed levy can be found here.  The proposed tax levy represents an increase of approximately 17% from last year.  About 7% of this increase is due to an increase in the Equalized Assessed Valuation (EAV) of the district.  However, the remaining 10% increase is due in large part to an increase in the levy for the Tort Immunity Fund from $650,000 last year to $2,000,000 this year.
