Kendall County Levy Reduction Advisory Question (November 2012)
|Voting on Taxes|
|Not on ballot|
This measure was an advisory question that asked residents if they would want every levy used to fund every governing body in the county reduced by 20 percent. Four members of the community were the force behind the petition drive, collecting and submitting around 2,500 signatures to place the issue on the ballot. Since the measure was only advisory, no governing body would be required to lower their tax rates if the measure was approved. The group behind the petition said they were hopeful that the issue would capture officials' attention and show them that residents are tired of such high taxes and are looking to the government to find ways to lower their budget costs.
