Question: How does a YES vote help you meet the district's needs? How will you address the district’s needs with a ZERO TAX RATE CHANGE?

Answer: Basically, the bond (or mortgage) we took out to build Lotus will be paid off. This means that--if we do nothing, or if the referendum fails--the tax rate drops 59 cents per $100 of home value for all taxpayers. It's kind of like a bank account when the mortgage is paid...you get that money back. In this case, it would be the taxpayers who get the money back.

By asking our taxpayers to keep the rate EXACTLY WHERE IT IS, the District keeps that 59 cents per $100 of home value for each home. We can repurpose the money since we no longer have to pay the bond on Lotus. In doing so, we free up the funds to pay for much needed building improvements at both sites, pay our teachers so they are no longer the lowest compensated in Lake County, and purchase current instructional materials to make sure our students have an equitable and current learning experience. The bottom line is that a "YES" referendum gives us funds each year to meet our needs.

School projects, street repairs on Lake County primary ballot

Support our local schools! Our kids and community deserve it! Vote yes on the ballot for District 114 Fox Lake Grade School!

Fox Lake Elementary District 114

The district is asking the tax rate be set to generate about $1.3 million each year, mainly for roof replacements and other needed work at its two schools.

"There are no huge bells-and-whistles improvements happening," Superintendent Heather Friziellie said. "This is just bricks-and-mortar stuff that has to get done."

Because the debt to build Lotus School will be paid off, extra money would be "repurposed" for other things, according to Friziellie. Some of the money would be set aside for salaries, as the District 114 teachers are among the lowest-paid in Lake County.

If voters approve the measure, taxes would stay roughly the same -- about $394 for the owner of a house valued at $200,000 -- Friziellie said. But bills would drop if voters reject the request.

School projects, street repairs on Lake County primary ballot School and fire station building projects and a new sales tax are among the questions facing some Lake County voters on the primary ballot.
