Elburn VB passes 2013 levy

By on December 6, 2013

ELBURN—The Village Board on Monday unanimously approved a 2013 tax levy of $824,000, following a public hearing with no comment.

Village President Dave Anderson said that, dividing the property tax amount residents pay to the village, the amount would come out to about $8 per week. For this, the village provides police protection, snow removal, street and sidewalk repair, and tree maintenance.

Although the amount levied, or requested—$824,000—is the same amount Elburn has requested the previous two years, the village expects that Kane County will approve a smaller amount, based on previous experience.

The board also approved levies for residents within the village’s Special Assessment Areas, which will pay for water management facilities, including the maintenance of storm water basin areas within those specific boundaries.
