CALUMET CITY — The Calumet City Elementary School District 155 Board of Education was presented on Thursday with a tentative 2017 property tax levy that Superintendent Troy Paraday said represents a 4 percent increase over the previous year.

The total amount of the levy that is expected to be adopted in December is $4,540,303.

Paraday said the Consumer Price Index this year is only 2.1 percent, so the district will likely see just that increase and not the full four percent.

"We're putting in a 4 percent levy in the anticipation that, one, the levy will be reduced by the county, and at the same time there may be some new property out there we're not aware of," Paraday said.
