Text of measure

Text of the question:

Shall the limiting rate under the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law for the Blackberry Township Road District, Kane County, Illinois, be increased by an additional amount equal to 0.14% above the limiting rate for road district purposes for levy year 2011 and be equal to 0.30264% of the equalized assessed value of the taxable property therein for levy year 2013? 1) The approximate amount of taxes extendable at the most recent extended limiting rate is $843,290, and the approximate amount of taxes extendable if the proposition is approved is $1,569,192. (2) For the 2013 levy year the approximate amount of the additional tax extendable against property containing a single family residence and having a fair market value of $100,000 is estimated to be $46.67. (3) If the proposition is approved, the aggregate extension for 2013 will be determined by the limiting rate set forth in the proposition, rather than the otherwise applicable limiting rate calculated under the provisions of the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law (commonly known as the Property Tax Cap Law).[1][2]
