Email News Alerts

School District 206 residents will see a change in their school taxes next year. That's because the school board is considering a 12.76 percent levy increase.


The preliminary total net levy for 2008, which is payable in 2009, is $8.1 million, according to Tom Wieczorek, business director for the district.

The reason for the increase, or at least the majority of it, is because of the post-employment bonding debt service estimate, said Wieczorek. (See related story.)
