The Special Service Area 61 EAV (equalized assessed value) for 2022 has increased from below 5% in 2021 to 8% for 2022. This increase in expected SSA revenue is due to increased property values in the footprint, NOT an increase in our levy, which remains at 0.65%.

The City of Chicago requires commissions with an EAV increase over 8% to hold an open community meeting to review the budget. SSA61 has scheduled a community meeting at 6:30 pm on October 26, prior to the next monthly commissioners meeting.
