During this Fall’s general election, Golf Manor Village Council has placed the renewal of an existing tax levy on the ballot.
Since this is a renewal of an existing levy, residential property taxes will not increase if the levy is passed.
Issue 12: 4-MIL Renewal for Current Village Operating Expenses
A renewal of a tax for the purpose of CURRENT OPERATING EXPENSES at a rate not exceeding four (4) mills for each one dollar of valuation, which amounts to forty cents ($0.40) for each one hundred dollars of valuation, for five (5) years, commencing in 2017, first due in calendar year 2018
This levy will allow the Village to provide municipal services to residents including maintenance of infrastructure, parks, green space, minor road repair, yard waste collection, and Fall leaf collection services.
5 Village Council Seats
Four 4-year term seats are open in this year’s general election along with completing the remainder of one seat with a remaining two years of a 4-year term.
