We are committed to helping our neighbors and friends understand more about the referendum and why it is so vital to get those 'YES' votes. Many futures are made within the walls of a library, let's bring future imagination to life and vote YES on April 4th.
ABOUT THE REFERENDUM
The Sugar Grove Public Library District Board of Trustees voted to place a Zero Tax Rate Increase Referendum question on the April 4, 2023, ballot. Building bonds (think mortgage) issued to construct the library will be paid off in 2024, saving the district close to $1,000,000.00. The library will ask voters to approve taking money currently applied to bond payments and in turn using it for operating costs (materials, programs, and maintenance of buildings). The referendum question will ask for an increase in the operating fund limiting rate. The rate of the bond will be reduced by the same amount. This will result in no net increase to your tax rate. If voters choose "Yes", the tax rate will remain the same. If voters choose "No", the tax rate will be reduced.
Neither option will increase the tax rate.
