Correct Info Regarding 2019 Real Estate Property Taxes

Yesterday’s Daily Chronicle article mistakenly provided misinformation about 2019 real estate property taxes.

The correct information from DeKalb County Treasurer Christine Johnson is as follows:

The County will waive First Installment late penalties up until September 3, 2020. The waiver application must accompany the taxpayer’s first installment payment. The waiver application should not be sent separately from the payment.

Applications for the waiver will soon be available on the County website,

Christine J. Johnson
DeKalb County Treasurer

Stage Coach Players Holding Fabric Giveaway and Food Drive Event

Stage Coach Players of DeKalb, the state of Illinois’ longest continuous running community theatre will be performing some community outreach during the Covid-19 pandemic. On Tuesday, April 21st, the theatre group will be giving away fabric if you are looking to create your own masks or whatever creative needs you may have. It will run from 3:00 PM through 6:00 PM and be held in the back parking lot.

In addition to the fabric giveaway, Stage Coach Players will also be holding a food drive to benefit Barb Food Mart. All non-perishable items will be accepted such as canned meat, vegetables and fruit along with boxed food and items in plastic containers. Please no glass containers.

Barb Food Mart opened in June of 2013. Its goal is to reduce food insecurity and increase nutrition education throughout the DeKalb School District. At the time, 50% of the students received free and/or reduced lunch assistance. Today that number is 58%. Teachers district-wide have long recognized the changing economic needs of the students they see each day in their classrooms. They have provided many children with meals form their own wallets. Lunch supervisors have seen too many kids go without, some more than a day or two.

During this difficult time, many families are forced to make hard choices such as to purchase food or pay the utilities. Currently, Barb Food Mart serves 80-100 families each Thursday, providing family-friendly meals, meat, fresh produce and milk. They strive to provide an atmosphere of respect and dignity as parents shop each week.

Please visit Stage Coach Theatre on Tuesday, April 21st from 3:00 through 6:00 to receive some fabric or to donate non-perishable goods to Barb Food Mart. Or both. Stage Coach Players will be hosting an additional food drive for Spartan Food Bank in the coming weeks.
