Members of the Hillsboro Rec District formally agreed Wednesday to ask voters in June for a property tax increase of up to six mills to finance the city’s summer rec programs.

City Commissioner Levi Reese said the district – which oversees programs like Babe Ruth, Little League and T-ball in Hillsboro – finished 2019 nearly $4,600 in the red.

That amount would have been larger had the Hillsboro City Commission not approved $10,000 to keep the district financially viable.

Reese distributed a handful of petitions to rec board members and asked that they start collecting signatures to place the proposed tax increase on the June 9 ballot.
