Discussion Items
< Gary Kusmierczak representing the Collinsville Unit 10 School Board talked to the Board about tax appeals and how they hurt public bodies. The School Board’s fight to stop businesses from appealing their taxes requires attorney intervention. Mr. Kusmierczak presented the idea that all public bodies involved could possibly share the cost of the fight to stop the appeal process. The Board pointed out that our share of that amount would be .0015 which would not be worth the paperwork to figure out our share of the costs.
