With regard to the village of Oostburg, this bill changes the rule that the
equalized value of taxable property of a new or amended tax incremental district
(TID) plus the value increment of all existing TIDs does not exceed 12 percent of the
total equalized value of taxable property in the city or village. Under the bill, the 12
percent rule becomes a 15 percent rule for the village of Oostburg, with regard to the
creation of TID Number 3 by the village. Upon the termination of that TID, the limit
will return to 12 percent.
