CITY COUNCIL CONSIDERS TAX LEVY INCREASE TUESDAY
Tuesday night, the Greenville City Council will be asked to raise their property tax levy by the maximum five percent allowed by law without having to conduct a truth and taxation hearing. In a special council meeting last week, City Manager Dave Willey presented several money-saving, service-reducing ideas plus the possibility of raising the city’s tax levy. Slow pay from the State of Illinois on the city’s portion of the state income tax was the main culprit in causing a large shortfall in the city’s general fund.
