New Library on November 8 Ballot



On July 19, the Crystal Lake City Council unanimously approved a request by the Library Board to place an Advisory Referendum question for a new 75,000 square foot Library on the ballot in November 2016. If approved, the new building will be constructed at the Library’s current site and will cost $30,100,000, which will amount to an $11 dollar a month ($132 per year) tax increase for a home with a Fair Cash Value of $200,000.

Below are links to informational resources about the details of the Advisory Referendum:
