If you own a home in Chicago, you are undoubtedly aware of the fact that CPS is proposing a property tax increase to cover a $712 million budget deficit. I would like to hear from residents in the 38th Ward as to whether or not they support this increase which will result in an average increase of $84 in your annual property tax bill. Is it fair for homeowners alone to pay for our public schools or would it be more equitable if these revenues came from a more universal source? Please let me know how you feel and let me know if you are a homeowner or not. Please send your comments and ideas to www.Ward38.com or just post a response here on Everyblock.
Please note that I will try to respond to everyone, but if I don't, be assured that I will read each and every comment. Thank you for your input!
