A special election will be held on Tuesday, May 7 for voters in Precinct 22, which is located in the Oak Park Public School District. Polls will be open from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. at St. John’s Armenian Church, 22001 Northwestern Highway.

The May 7 ballot will consist of a non-homestead operating mileage renewal proposal, which would renew the authority of the School District of the City of Oak Park to levy 17.8505 mills previously authorized and levied for general operating purposes on non-homestead taxable property (industrial, commercial and rental property). This authority, combined with another unexpired authorization, would allow the school district to receive revenues at the full foundation allowance permitted by the State.

If the proposal passes as a renewal of authority which expired with the 2018 tax levy, the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable non-homestead property in the Oak Park Public School District will increase by 17.8508 mills ($17.8508 on each $1,000 of taxable value) for twenty (20) years, the years 2019 to 2038, inclusive, to provide funds for operating expenses. This millage would raise an estimated $3,832,031 for the Oak Park School District in the first year that it is levied.
