In the Garwood council mtg of July 27, 2023 in a council report, it was stated they are in negotiations with the board of education on firming up the PILOT distribution at 10 percent from the Vermella projects. From 2016 on, I wrote initial letters to the governing body that there should be an intralocal agreement that the PILOT distribution to the school district should be the same as normal assessed taxation, that distribution would be around 60 percent. There really is no reason to vary away from normal taxation percentages found with any other building or home in town. We even find that the land underneath these complex’ are taxed the normal way. The governing bodies simply dismissed that premise.
