District 62 levy going up almost 7 percent

Daily Herald report

The Des Plaines Elementary District 62 board has adopted a tax levy of $74.4 million, a 6.93 percent increase. The increase is based on the 2.1 percent rise in the consumer price index and the projected increase in the tax base due to new construction within the district. The district's tax on existing properties should increase approximately 2.1 percent. The board approved the levy after a public hearing last month.
