At a meeting on Thursday, August 18, the Lemont High School District 210 Board of Education unanimously approved a resolution to place a referendum question on the November 8, 2022, ballot.
If the referendum is approved by a majority of voters, District 210 taxpayers will see no increase to the bond and interest rate on their tax bills, and District 210 will have access to consistent funding in order to make necessary improvements on campus on an as-needed basis.
The referendum question that will be included on the November 8, 2022, ballot will read:
Shall the debt service extension base under the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law for Lemont Township High School District Number 210, Cook and DuPage Counties, Illinois, for payment of principal and interest on limited bonds be increased from $249,604 to $5,000,000 for the 2022 levy year and all subsequent levy years?
A series of informational activities will be established in order to educate the community on why the Board of Education has placed this referendum question on the ballot. District 210 will promote these events to ensure the community is well informed prior to the November election.
