For the 4th year in a row (3rd during my tenure) the Kane County Board will proudly pass a flat tax levy. I promised my constituents that I would not add to their property tax burden, and I am proud to once again keep that promise.

On October 13th I was in the minority in opposing an increase to the tax levy for the Kane County Forest Preserve. When the full vote came to the Board in November, the vote total shifted and I found myself happily in the majority as we froze the levy again. The frozen levy translates to lower taxes for residents per the County portion of your property tax bill. Even if this is only a small reduction, I am proud to have kept true to my promise.
Below are all County Board Committee meetings scheduled for November which Kurt is a member:
