SRC Board of Directors votes to reduce property tax

At their December meeting, the SRC Board of Directors voted to approve the property tax levy that will be used to calculate property taxes for fiscal year 2023.

TOWNSHIP — During the December meeting, Spoon River College board members voted to approve the property tax levy that will be used to calculate property taxes for fiscal year 2023. Council approved a total SRC tax rate of 0.6530. This rate represents a decrease of 1.47% compared to the tax rate of the previous year. This does not guarantee that an individual’s property tax would be reduced, as there might be an increase in the assessment of the property, but the tax rate charged to the CBC is reduced. CBC President Curt Oldfield said that “the members of the Board of Trustees of Spoon River College take their fiscal responsibility very seriously and are happy to be able to provide a little relief to landowners in the CBC District”.

In another board action, the board voted to approve the change to the January board retreat and regular meeting location at the Macomb Outreach Center. The Board also approved an agreement with ONEFIRE for the redesign of the SRC.edu website. This work will begin after the first of the year and the changes to the website should be visible at the end of spring 2022.

Finally, the board heard reports on the increase in courses and rentals at the Macomb Outreach Center, and a report from the evaluation committee on the work that SRC professors are doing to measure learning outcomes of all students in the areas of communication, problem solving, equity, creativity, decision making and collaboration.
