Town of Normal approves property tax decrease

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The Normal Town council approved a possible property tax decrease for residents.

Council members passed a tax levy that would cut just under $750 in property taxes for those with homes valued at $165,000.

They are going to keep their $13 million tax levy from last year, but expects their assessed value will increase by one percent, allowing the decrease.

Council Member Jeff Fritzen explained it as collecting the same amount of total money just less from each tax payer.

“That required some belt tightening a year or so ago when we cut some positions and adjusted some fees for service or whatever. Anytime you can even hold the line on property taxes that’s an important thing for our tax payers, for our citizens,” he said.

Fritzen said the actual tax rate will be determined by next Spring.
