Weisner Administration Proposes Property Tax Rate Increase for Aurora in 2011 | Naperville Lowers Rate Again

Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner and his administration is asking the Aurora City Council to consider a property tax rate increase to generate millions more in revenue for 2011.

With a looming estimated deficit of $18 million, the budget which is finally being released to city council members after being required to be ready by October 15th, shows a property tax rate increase.

The NEW property tax rate for Aurora, IF the Aurora City Council goes along with the tax would be $1.9547 per $100 of EAV.

Comparison with Naperville (which is lowering their tax rate again):

AURORA-------------------------------------------------------->$1.9547

NAPERVILLE----------------->$0.7166

I guess the greedy unions and greedy beaureaucrats have to get their retirements from someone...why not the sapy taxpayer.

It's all a numbers game.

In Naperville rates are low but assessed value is high. Most Naperville homeowners pay higher tax bills than most Aurorans.

Most Auroran's have seen their assessed value go down. If the tax rate goes up, they pay the same.

This is what happens when a police union runs your town.

I might agree to higher taxes when I see the mayor actively reducing his ridiculous spending on parks, spokespeople, landscaping and cronies. As that won't happen, I don't have to worry.
Unfortunately, the sheep aldermen will vote to raise taxes because Weisner says to.

Incredible.

They should be lowering it, not raising it.

We are already burdened high enough and have sinking property values.

Heard on the news that Chicago is raising their property taxes due to a mandate from the state for pensions, I think for police and maybe firemen, not sure. This mandate is statewide as I understand it, so therefore property taxes will go up sometime anyway, plus this proposal? The city needs to learn to live within its' means as the rest of us have had to do.

Can't we just lay off more cops and firemen?

Why is the the city allowed to raise taxes and other government agencies must put it to a vote. Weisner needs to go he has ran this city right into the ground from 7 million dollar parking lots to overpaid cronies. Weisner I hope your cancer comes back because you are a cancer.

You had the chance to vote him out of office but NO Some of you voted for him for 4 more years. Should have gotten rid of him when you had the chance.

The Mayor has a new car on order and all the new lights in downtown. Now the whores and dope dealers can see better. Watch out for the guys running soen the street with guns to. There was a hughe fight on Lasalle St. All gangs and guns. Very nice Tommy.

I too heard about the new car Tom ordered. I guess the Charger he took from the PD is not good enough. I also saw a Jeep Cherokee Overland Edition running around with a city logo on it. I seem to remember those running about forty grand new. Don't know what division it was for though. Either way this is the info that needs to be out there for all to see. Too much waste.

Here we go with the "Tommy Boy" bashing. Good job!!! Keep it up.
While we are at it, how many Finance Director/City Treasurers were 18 million dollars off. Now that the focus is on this years budget, some can breath easier more scruteny is not made to budgets past. What an interesting story they tell

thats because Naperville has nicer property. The pusspocket is a dump where would you rather live.

Wow! Napervilles EAV is 2/3rd less than Auroras. The amount collected from property taxes should then be 2/3rds less than Aurora. In 2010 the City of Aurora collected 64 million dollars in property taxes,therefore given the Naperville tax rate they should have collected 21 million dollars,Not! they collected $50 million.
