KINGSBURY PARK DISTRICT MEETING

At the Monday night Kingsbury Park District Board meeting, citizen Gary Trudell expressed concerns about the recent hike in property taxes. Trudell asked board members to consider the health of the local economy when making a decision on next year's tax levy. Director Sauerwein said the board would be voting on that levy at the December meeting. Any increase in the Levy could not go over five percent without a truth in taxation public hearing. Sauerwein pointed out a five percent park district raise would result in a $5.00 increase in property taxes on a one hundred thousand dollar house. Sauerwein said the park district has several pressing issues including deteriorating light poles at the JC field. He pointed out the number one money drain for the park district budget is the swimming pool. In other business, again this year the lake at Patriot’s Park was stocked with trout and board member Anthony Macon told WGEL this years trout are bigger and better than in past years.
