Referendum 2020

Thank you for visiting the Peotone CUSD 207U referendum page! Being an informed voter is an important duty to your community and we appreciate your willingness to learn about the referendum question.

The community finds itself in a unique position because the total debt levy is decreasing in the next four years. This would allow the community to increase its financial support of the school district with little to no impact to individual tax burdens. Increasing the operating rate would also allow for more efficient use of resources because the community would no longer have to pay fees and interest on funds being used for district operations.

 If the details of the plan are acceptable to voters, the following would result:

  • Tax bills free of District debt
  • Lower total tax rate in 2023 and beyond
  • Every tax dollar stays in Peotone

If you have specific questions, concerns, or comments, please email them to Feedback from the community will shape further educational efforts and help advance the conversation so the needs of the district and taxpayers are met.
