Property owners should see the tax levy stay at 2019 levels for next year, but increased assessed values may still increase bills slightly. LaSalle County expects to bring in $25 million in property taxes. The Finance Committee presented the preliminary budget with over $91 million in spending before the LaSalle County Board at the meeting Thursday.
Finance Committee Chairman Brian Dose explained the budget was planned with a three-year outlook and is as stripped down as possible. The full preliminary budget may be viewed on the LaSalle County website under Financial Information.
