Protest brewing against proposed Kane tax hike

December 10, 2011

Public opposition appears to be building against what some say is the largest property tax increase ever proposed in the borough of Kane.
One plan discussed Thursday by the Kane Borough Council calls for boosting the tax rate by 4 mills—a 34-percent increase over the current level of 7.875 mills.
One “compromise” plan calls for a 3-mill tax increase and the elimination of a Kane police officer.
Each mill generates about $36,000 in tax revenue.
