Spring Valley City Council to Discuss Bede’s Meter Breaks

Posted by wlpo on November 24, 2015

Has St. Bede Academy been catching an even bigger break than they’re supposed to with utility taxes?

According to the NewsTribune, Spring Valley City Attorney Jim Andreoni says the academy has several meters on their property that are not being taxed by Ameren.

While St. Bede is on the tax exemption list with Spring Valley, Andreoni wonders if the school should be exempt on all their meters or just the ones used for school purposes. The city also exempts Hall and JFK Elementary but they only have one meter.

The council didn’t make a decision last night but plan to talk about it more during a legislative committee meeting on December 3rd.
