Maine Township Holds the Line on Tax Levy to Give Taxpayers a Break
Dec. 2, 2013 — The Maine Township Board of Trustees voted unanimously at its meeting Nov. 25 to hold the line on the tax levy that will be collected in 2014. There was essentially no increase over the prior year's levy.
"We want to give the taxpayers a break in their tax bills from Maine Township next year," said Carol A. Teschky, Maine Township Supervisor. "We have been consistently fiscally conservative in our spending over the last couple of years and are happy to pass along some savings to the taxpayers," she said.
The 2013 levy passed at the Nov. 25 meeting is the amount of money that Maine Township asks Cook County officials to collect through property taxes to fund Maine Townships day to day operations. Maine Township levies taxes for the Town Fund and for the General Assistance Fund. The levy for the Town Fund is $4,349,812. The levy for the General Assistance Fund is $1,042,142.
