D11 Tax Increase

Jake • 9 hours ago

What is the difference between informational and promotional? No matter how D11 presents it, it is still asking for a tax increase.

... and what's this I hear about D11 attorneys delaying a hearing regarding irregularities until AFTER the election?
"Bruce is calling out the School District again today as well as the judge who will hear the case. In their response to his complaint, District 11 filed a motion to extend the hearing until November 10, three days after the election."

Reference this Gazette article:
"The proposal would cost homeowners an estimated $3.75 per month per $100,000 of home value".

This statement is misleading by omission as it is ONLY APPLIES TO 2018. If approved, the cost will incrementally rise each year for 7 years until 2024 at which time we will see a 59% increase over the 2018 tax increase.

Note: I have extrapolated the figures below which are rounded to the nearest penny per information provided by KKTV 11 at http://www.kktv.com/content...

In 2018:
For a $100,000 home value in D11 the ANNUAL INCREASE in taxes will be $45.21 ($3.77 per month)
For a $200,000 home value in D11 the ANNUAL INCREASE in taxes will be $90.43 ($7.54 per month)
For a $300,000 home value in D11 the ANNUAL INCREASE in taxes will be $135.65 ($11.30 per month)
For a $400,000 home value in D11 the ANNUAL INCREASE in taxes will be $180.86 ($15.07 per month)
For a $500,000 home value in D11 the ANNUAL INCREASE in taxes will be $226.08 ($18.84 per month)
For a $600,000 home value in D11 the ANNUAL INCREASE in taxes will be $271.30 ($22.61 per month)

In 2024:
For a $100,000 home value in D11 the ANNUAL INCREASE in taxes will be $76.65 ($6.39 per month)
For a $200,000 home value in D11 the ANNUAL INCREASE in taxes will be $153.12 ($12.76 per month)
For a $300,000 home value in D11 the ANNUAL INCREASE in taxes will be $229.95 ($19.16 per month)
For a $400,000 home value in D11 the ANNUAL INCREASE in taxes will be $306.48 ($25.54 per month)
For a $500,000 home value in D11 the ANNUAL INCREASE in taxes will be $383.25 ($31.94 per month)
For a $600,000 home value in D11 the ANNUAL INCREASE in taxes will be $459.90 ($38.32 per month)

I haven't decided how I'm going to vote yet.
I do, however, want D11 to present the true cost of the proposed 2017 Mill Levy Override (MLO) and not lead the voters to believe that $3.75 per
$100,000 in home value is all they will pay if the MLO passes.
