Journal Star article about County's low tax rate
As the Chairman of Peoria County's Tax Committee, Allen Mayer is proud that the county's tax rate is the lowest it has been in well over a decade. The property tax rate for this year was $0.79957 per $100 of assessed valuation. According to County Clerk records that's the lowest property tax rate since 1981.

In fact, the property tax rate has declined every year that Allen Mayer has served on the County Board. The rate for 2004 when Allen was first elected was $0.8543 per $100 of assessed valuation.
