The County Facilities Sales Tax (CFST), designed to assist schools with building infrastructure and/or pay down capital debt, will appear on the November 6 ballot in Tazewell County. The Tremont Board of Education unanimously passed a Resolution on October 11 agreeing to reduce non-capped tax rates by .30 cents if the measure passes.  A District #702 homeowner of a $200,000 property would save around $200 on property taxes.

Several informational meetings are scheduled this week in the Middle/High School Library to answer questions on this topic. Attendees are encouraged to park in the Middle School lot and enter through those doors to the library. Please consider attending one of the following meetings if you have questions on this issue:

       Tuesday, Oct. 23: 6:30 am, 4:00 pm, 4:45 pm, 5:30 pm, or 6:15 pm

       Thursday, Oct. 25: 6:15 pm or 7:00 pm
