Avon Township will not be increasing its tax levy for 2012.
The proposed levy of $1.62 million is the same as the 2011 levy, which was decreased 13.7 percent from 2010.
Because no increase is being proposed, a public hearing is not required. The township board will vote on the levy at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Avon Township Center, 433 E. Washington St., in Round Lake Park.
The township will levy $550,000 for the Town Fund and $140,000 for the General Assistance Fund. The highway commission will levy $860,511 for the Permanent Road Fund and $68,687 for the General Road Fund, for a total levy of $1.62 million.
The township was extended $1.62 million in 2011. When asked how much he thought the 2012 extension would be, Supervisor Sam Yingling said it can be difficult to determine.
"It is sometimes a little higher or a little lower than the levy requested. During the extension of 2011, the Town and General Assistance Fund received $7,179 more than it levied and Highway Funds received $374 more than it levied."
