A representative from Miller Cooper presented the fiscal year 2018 independent audit report to the board.

Adoption of 2018 Tax Levy – 4.04
The board discussed a resolution directing the administration to prepare the 2018 tax levy and that a public hearing date be set for November 19, 2018, at 7:00 pm.

At the December 10, 2018, board meeting, the board will vote on the adoption of a total levy in the amount of $82,700,000 for 2018, which is 3.84% above the 2017 extended levy of $79,643,699. This amount is to be distributed in the district’s funds as indicated in the Certificate of Tax Levy.

Public Hearing on 2018 Tax Levy – 4.05
Cook County taxing districts adhere to the Truth in Taxation Law (35 ILCS 200/18-55; Division 2). This law requires the district to estimate the necessary amount of its aggregate levy not fewer than 20 days before taking action to adopt the levy.

The board discussed the resolution to announce the public hearing date of November 19, 2018.

Authorization of Reduction of Certain Fund Levies for the 2018 Tax Levy – 4.06

Public Act 89-01 subjected Cook County school districts to the Property Tax Extension Limitation Act (“PTELA”) for the 2018 levy year and imposed a limit on the increase in tax extensions from the 2017 levy year to the 2018 levy year. The County Clerk has notified each Cook County taxing district now subject to the PTELA that it may direct the County Clerk’s Office to make specific and necessary reductions to its tax levy for the 2018 levy year to meet the requirements of the PTELA.

At the December 10, 2018 board meeting, the board will vote on the adoption to direct the County Clerk to make the necessary reductions to CCSD59’s tax levy for the 2018 levy year in order that the levies by fund shall be no less than the following amounts as indicated:

  • Education – $69,000,000
  • Special Education – $950,000
  • Building – $6,000,000
  • Transportation – $3,750,000
  • Working Cash – $0
  • Municipal Retirement – $1,750,000
  • Social Security – $1,250,000

If any additional reductions are required to be made to the district’s tax levy beyond those projected and specified by the board, such reductions shall be made to the Operations & Maintenance Fund.
