This League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford Luncheon & Learn panel discussion presents pros and cons of the upcoming for a property tax increase advisory referendum concerning River Bluff nursing home, a Winnebago county-owned facility. The ballot question is to advise the Winnebago County Board concerning a proposed increase on the property tax from .455 to .1% per $100 on the equalized assessed value. Depending on multiple factors it would average to be $25.00 per year for a home valued at $150,000.00. The non-binding advisory referendum will be on the Illinois primary ballot June 28, 2022. One need not request a party-affiliated ballot. One may request a nonpartisan ballot in order to vote on the referendum. Panelists are Jaime Salgado (Pro) and Jean Crosby (Con) of the Winnebago County Board. Paula Lind of the LWVGR Local Government Committee is your moderator. The League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford has been a source of governmental and social research and factual information since 1922. Please visit the website at lwvgr.org for more information.
