Letter: Sugar Grove Library seeks Limiting Rate Increase

By on February 28, 2014

The Sugar Grove Public Library District seeks a Limiting Rate Increase on the March 18, 2014, ballot.

The library has tried many times but has never increased its limiting rate, which is far below comparable libraries in the area. The Limiting Rate Increase would allocate a greater proportion of the budget to support library operations and maintenance. Currently the greater proportion pays on the building bonds.

For a home with a Fair Market Value of $100,000 or EAV of $33,333 the cost will be $2.14 per month.

Check out the library’s website, www.sugargrove.lib.il.us, for a link to a narrated slide show and brochure of important information before you vote. Or stop by the library for more information on how the library will use the additional funding. Library staff and trustees welcome your input.

Register and vote early at the library.
