Supporters of a six-mill property tax increase for the Hillsboro Recreation District will begin collecting signatures in January prior to a June 9, 2020 public vote on the tax.

Members of the rec district met Wednesday in Hillsboro and agreed to proceed with the tax request, which will require fewer than 25 signatures to appear on the June ballot.

Hillsboro City Commissioner Levi Reese said the district, which oversees popular summer programs such as Little League and T-ball in Hillsboro, will deficit spend by $4,600 this year.

That figure would have been more severe if the Hillsboro City Commission hadn’t approved a $10,000 donation for the district, he said.

A property tax increase of six mills will generate between $14,000 and $19,000 depending on the valuation of properties in the city, Reese said.
