2016 Proposed Property Tax Levy

The Sanitary District of Decatur’s 2016 proposed property tax levy is $3,872,469 with $1,402,000 of the total being the aggregate levy and $2,470,469 restricted to debt service payments. This is an increase of $313,692 with $247,388 designated for debt service payments and $66,000 for pension expenses. The increase is projected to cost a resident with a $77,500 home an additional $4.39 per year on their tax bill. However, the District plans on offsetting the debt service increase by reducing a projected 2017 user fee increase to reduce or eliminate the impact on homeowners.

The proposed increase to the aggregate levy excluding the debt service levy is projected to increase less than the 5% truth-in-taxation limit so a public hearing and special notification is not required.

The Board will be voting on the 2016 property tax levy on December 14, 2016 at 5:30 PM at the District’s administrative office located at 501 Dipper Lane, Decatur, IL 62522. Posted November 17, 2016.
