Lombard property taxes frozen, but not without opposition
LOMBARD – For the first time in 20 years, residents of Lombard will not see a rise in property taxes after trustees voted 4-2 to approve a freeze on the increase at an Oct. 17 meeting.
"The tax payers are telling us they've had enough of the constant property tax hikes with no increase in services," said Trustee Peter Breen, who introduced the freeze that cuts roughly one quarter million dollars from next year's proposed Lombard property tax levy. "When I saw we had good surpluses and our village was in sound financial condition, I believed it was time to return the savings to the people in the village."
Breen said he has been working for the last 2.5 years to get property tax relief for Lombard residents. He said last year the village was able to get rid of the village vehicle sticker fee, but this year he was pleased to get the four votes needed to freeze property taxes.
