Ballot Questions Ask About Tax Increases And School Annexation

Posted by wlpo on April 4, 2011

Tuesday’s election ballots aren’t littered with referendum questions.

Only two referendums are on up for vote in La Salle County.  Earlville School District voters are being asked whether or not they support raising the district education tax rate from $2.60 to $4 per 100 dollars assessed valuation.  Board members have said they need additional revenue of the school district could close.  The other referendum question is in Naplate where voters there are being asked if they want to reduce the number of village trustees from 5 to 4.  Many village boards like Utica have 6 trustees plus the mayor.

In Bureau County, voters in Arlington are being asked if they want to pay an extra tax for ambulance service.  Voters in Neponset are asked if they want to annex into the Kewanee School District and voters in Bureau Township are being asked if they’re okay with increasing a tax rate for bridge construction.
