Workshop and Public Comments: Village Board To Discuss Potential New Tax Revenues
The Village is accepting public comment, both in person and via e-mail, related to a proposed ordinance change regarding an increase to revenue sources via the possible addition of a quarter percent (0.25 percent) sales tax, resulting in total sales tax rate of eight percent (8.0 percent); a one percent (1.0 percent) food and beverage tax; and/or a packaged liquor tax.
The opportunity to speak in person will be on Thursday, February 20 during a Village Board Workshop. The workshop will begin immediately following the Regular Board Meeting at 7:30 p.m. Both the Board Meeting and Workshop will take place in the Werch Board Room, inside Village Hall, 5 Plaza Drive.
