District 67 plans referendum meetings

MORTON GROVE — Golf Elementary School District 67 has scheduled four open-house sessions in September and October to give district residents a chance to learn about two referendum measures that will be on the November ballot.
The district is asking for both a tax increase and authority to sell bonds to finance improvements to both Golf Middle School and Hynes School, as well as construction of a new gym at Hynes.
All of the open-house sessions will run from 5-8:30 p.m. and visitors may come and go at any time. They will be Sept. 18 and Oct. 17 at Golf, 9401 Waukegan Road, and Oct. 1 and 29 at Hynes, 9000 Belleforte Ave.
Superintendent Jamie Reilly said administrators and architects will be there to answer questions and provide other information on the district and the referendum questions will be available.
District officials have put together charts to let homeowners know how much the tax-increase referendum and bond sale-referendum will cost them.
For Morton Grove residents, for example, who paid a total of $3,000 in 2011 taxes, the total increase from both measures would be $216.
For a homeowner who paid $9,000, the total increase would be $648.
For Niles residents the numbers would be $235 and $706.
The district is sending out a special edition of its newsletter, “The Chalkboard,” this month with detailed information about the two referendum questions.
