Discussion Items

Agenda Item 7.0

Prepare 2022 Tax Levy And Set Date – 7.01
Strategic Goal (SG) 4: Stewardship of Resources
Cook County taxing districts follow the Truth in Taxation Law (35 ILCS 200/18-55; Division 2). This law requires CCSD59 to estimate the necessary amount of its aggregate levy not fewer than 20 days before taking action to adopt the levy. The board will vote at the Committee of the Whole board meeting on September 26, 2022, on proceeding with the preparation of the 2022 levy and to announce the public hearing date of November 14, 2022.

Prepare 2023-2024 Budget – 7.02
SG 4: Stewardship of Resources
Section 5/17-1 of the Illinois School Code requires an annual tentative budget to be prepared by a representative designated by the board, which is available for public inspection for at least 30 days prior to final action. 

At the October 10, 2022, board meeting, the board will vote to designate the superintendent to cause a tentative budget to be prepared for the 2023-24 fiscal year based on the following criteria of budget parameters:

  • In accordance with board approved Fund Balance Policy; 
  • Allocate costs associated with implementing the District Strategic Plan;
  • Project staffing based on enrollment projections, proposed staffing plans, and frameworks; 
  • Allocate salary costs based on board authorized percentage increases and negotiated agreements;
  • Allocate insurance benefit costs based on projections and plans as identified through the Insurance Committee process;
  • Allocate facilities, equipment, and capital improvement project costs adopted by the Board of Education; 
  • Allocate funds to support the district technology plan;
  • Allocate funds to support district initiatives;
  • Allocate resources in alignment with other assumptions and strategies as set forth in the Long-Term Financial Plan, representative of the board’s goal to maintain its State Financial Profile Recognition status.

Authorizing Intervention at the Property Tax Appeals Board (PTAB) for Assessment of Appeals – 7.03
SG 4: Stewardship of Resources
The board discussed a resolution authorizing CCSD59 to intervene on all assessment appeals, rather than each time a notice is received from the Cook County Board of Review on a newly-filed appeal. Notification of Property Tax Appeals Board (PTAB) cases are forwarded to Franczek P.C. as received. CCSD59 intervenes in all cases, sometimes in partnership with District 214, depending on the location of the property and the requested amount of assessed value reduction. 

In most cases, the case is settled prior to further actions, but in some cases a full appraisal is recommended, or a case can progress to an actual hearing with PTAB. Franczek P.C. will represent the board’s interests in these proceedings.

The board will vote on approving the resolution at the October 10, 2022, board meeting.
