2 LEROY PARK DISTRICT & CITY OF LEROY A Joint Venture for a Community Recreation Facility
3 Together they will form a new entity called the Recreation Center Authority R C A LeRoy Park District The Park District is a stand alone taxing body charged with the responsibility of providing recreation services to an area similar to the area served by the LeRoy School District. City of LeRoy The City is a stand alone taxing body charged with the responsibility of providing parks and related services to individuals and families residing within the corporate limits.
4 RECREATION CENTER AUTHORITY R C A The RCA will build a community recreation center that will be owned 50% by the City of LeRoy and 50% by the LeRoy Park District
5 RECREATION CENTER AUTHORITY R C A This entity will be made up of a five-member board. –2 representatives from the LeRoy Park District Board –2 representatives from the City of LeRoy (City Council) –1 member at large The board will be responsible for the management of the Recreation Center. The board will oversee all day-to-day decisions for the RCA.
6 RECREATION CENTER AUTHORITY R C A The Recreation Center Authority will build a $4,350,000 facility on the existing Park District property to include: A 6-Lane Competition Size Swimming Pool (Outdoor) A Diving Well (Outdoor) A zero depth entry childrens pool (Outdoor) A 4-Lane Competition Size Indoor Pool A Jacuzzi A Gym with an elevated walking track A Weight/Fitness area & 2 Activity Rooms An indoor/outdoor concession area
10 LeRoy Vote YES The Purpose Of This Presentation Is To Provide ALL Available Information To Allow The Citizens Of LeRoy To Vote YES With Confidence For The Proposed Sales Tax Referendum On April 17, 2007. A Yes Vote Will Allow The Joint-Venture Between The City Of LeRoy And The LeRoy Park District To Build A Community Recreation Center For The Benefit Of The Entire Community.
11 Who Will Benefit From The Recreation Center? Pool facilities available 12 months of the year. A gym available for adults on a regular basis. A weight/fitness area available on a daily basis. A walking track open to the public. Classes and programs to utilize the indoor and outdoor pools and the activity rooms Child care services
12 What Is Wrong With The Existing Structure? The existing pool structure was evaluated by the architect (Caius Jennison of Farnsworth). It is his professional opinion that the existing structure is no longer viable. A liner could be installed, significant improvements to the chemical and drainage systems along with the decking, but the cost would be over 80% of the cost of building a new facility. With the City becoming a partner, and adding the indoor facilities, the project has now moved in a completely different direction.
13 What Will Happen to the Existing Services? All services currently provided by the Park District at this location will be rebuilt or relocated. Relocated facilities will be built in City of LeRoy neighborhood parks. Outdoor Pool facilitiesRebuilt Basketball CourtsRelocated Tennis CourtsRelocated
14 How Does Increasing Sales Tax Build a Recreation Center? The City of LeRoy has authorized a Sales Tax Referendum to increase the sales tax rate in LeRoy from the existing 6.25% to 6.75%. This is equal to.5% (1/2 of 1%) increase and according to the State of Illinois this tax will generate approximately $150,000 per year in new funds.
15 Sales Tax Current Sales Tax Structure – 6.25% 1. 5% Paid to the State of Illinois 2. 1% Paid to the City of LeRoy 3..25% Paid to McLean County Proposed Sales Tax Structure – 6.75% 1. 5% Paid to the State of Illinois 2. 1% Paid to the City of LeRoy 3..25% Paid to McLean County 4..5%(1/2 of 1%) Paid to City of LeRoy (RCA)
16 How Does LeRoy Sales Tax Compare to Other Communities? Current LeRoy Rate6.25% Proposed LeRoy Rate6.75% Bloomington Rate7.50% Normal Rate7.50% Champaign Rate7.75% Urbana Rate7.75%
17 Sales Tax (Interstate Impact) In 2005, the City received $330,000 in sales tax dollars. The estimate is that approximately $98,000 was paid by out-of-town patrons and passers-by. Approximately $45,000 (30%) of the projected $150,000 to be generated with the.5% increase in sales tax would come from out-of-town customers.
18 Financing If the referendum passes: The City will contribute $150,000 per year to paying the debt to build the new facility. The Park District has pledged $100,000 a year in property taxes from their existing revenue base.

31 CITY COUNCIL WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP? Are you ready to go to the voters with the option of increasing the sales tax by.5%? This would change the local rate from 6.25% to 6.75%. (With the exception of titled vehicles and equipment) They would not increase from the current rate. City Council Approved in November 2006
32 PARK DISTRICT WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP? Are you ready to pledge $100,000 in annual property taxes to building and operating this facility? Are you ready to join forces with the City of LeRoy to build a new recreation center facility? Park District Approved in December 2006
33 Referendum All residents living within the corporate limits of Le Roy will be asked to vote on the following question on April 17, 2007. Shall the City of Le Roy impose a one-half (1/2) of 1% Non-Home Rule Municipal Retailers Occupation Tax and Non-Home Rule Municipal Service Occupation Tax (commonly referred to as a municipal sales tax) for expenditure on property tax relief and public infrastructure in accordance with the provisions of Sections 8-11-1.1 through 8-11-1.4 of the Illinois Municipal Code (65 ILCS 5/8-11-1.1 through 65 ILCS 5/8-11-1.4)?
34 Referendum To support this project simply vote YES
35 Referendum The increase in sales tax will not affect any business that sells titled vehicles and/or equipment. It will affect any other business that sells items at 6.25%. They will be required to increase their rate to 6.75%.
36 Time Line If the referendum passes, the new rate will be implemented no later than January 1, 2008. A grant will be submitted in May, 2007 to the Dept of Natural Resources requesting $400,000 (maximum) in OSLAD Funds. The project will go out for bid as soon as the design work can be completed. (June or July 2007) The goal is for the Park District in conjunction with the City and the Township to complete all demolition and dirt work. They will rely on volunteer help. We hope to reduce the bid by $150,000 - $200,000 with this effort.
