Property Tax

The Village finances about 29% of its operations through property taxes and is continually striving to diverisfy its revenue base in order to reduce reliance on the property tax.  The Village's portion of the property tax reflects approximately 11.3% of the total tax bill.  Since 1994, the Village portion of the property tax bill has averaged 10.5%.
