Is the Capital Outlay tax permanent?

The tax is not permanent. Each year the USD 247 Board of Education will choose the tax rate ranging from 0 to 8 mils. The vote gives the BOE permission to set the rate each year versus going through the process and possible petitions multiple times within every five year period.

The USD 247 BOE has a history of not using its maximum taxes or any capital outlay at all, when it does not have to.
