LEMONT – The Lemont-Bromberek Combined School District 113A Board of Education approved a tentative property tax levy for 2013 during its Nov. 6 meeting.

The estimated total property taxes to be levied in 2013 is $24,542,587, an 8.09 percent increase from last year, according to district Business Manager Barbara Germany.

That amount includes $19,574,000 in corporate and special purposes property taxes and $4,968,587 in taxes levied for debt service and public building commission leases.

Because the increase is more than five percent, the district is required by state statute to hold a public hearing, which will take place during the Dec. 18 board meeting.
