Voters reject Genoa Township retirement tax

GENOA – A measure to create a new property tax levy for Genoa Township to provide pensions for its employees was rejected.

Voters gave the thumbs-down Tuesday to the proposal by a vote of 459 to 204, according to unofficial returns.

The measure would have increased property tax bills in the township by about $7 for every $100,000 in assessed value, according to the ballot language, and would have generated about $20,000 more a year in tax revenue and allowed the township to join the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund.

Voters rejected a similar proposal in November 2014.
