The Week Ahead – November 18th

Last week’s meeting with DuPage County Chairman Dan Cronin was very informative.  Over 120 residents and elected officials from Clarendon Hills, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, Burr Ridge, Darien, Westmont and DuPage County attended the meeting.  We will be sending and posting a summary of the meeting in a few days but wanted to pass along some important information about this coming week.

Three different boards will be discussing or approving their 2013 tax levy increases. All the boards are subject to the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law (PTELL).PTELL limits the taxing body’s ability to extend an increase in tax revenue by the prior year’s Consumer

Price Index (CPI) or 5%, whichever is less, plus the percentage of new property. The prior year’s CPI is 1.7%

In addition, the Village is hosting an open house for the Downtown Master Plan initiative.  Here are the key dates and locations of meetings this week.
