  • In July, 2015 the Village Board went into an agreement with the Batavia Park District to make its programs, services and amenities available to residents of the Village by cost effective means.  The Park District desires to serve more residents in the Village of Elburn while also respecting and protecting the tax payers within its own corporate limits.

    The Village residents are eligible to purchase “Household Memberships” in the Park District that will enable all members of the Household to participate in Park District programs and use Park District facilities at “in-district” rates.  The price of a *Household Membership for a Household for the first year of this agreement (i.e., from the effective date through September 30, 2016) is $320.00.  A “Household” is defined as a social unit composed of those living together in the same dwelling unit as permitted by the Village Code of the Village of Elburn.  A Household Membership extends the benefit of in-district pricing to all members of the household. The cost of a Household Membership may be pro-rated using a 12 month basis.  

    For information about programs, services and amenities that the Batavia Park District offers please visit: https://www.bataviaparks.org/.  When signing up please mention that you are interested in a household membership and then you will be eligible for “in-district” rates.

    *The yearly price of the Household Membership is determined using the current average net taxable value of an average home within the corporate limits of the Batavia Park District, multiplied by the latest determined Park District tax rate, rounded to the nearest $5.00 increment.  For example, at the time of this agreement, the Net Taxable value of an average home in the corporate limits of the Batavia Park District is $55,361.00, multiplied by the District Tax Rate (including taxes levied for special recreation programs) of 0.005765 = 319.17, which is then rounded up to $320.00.  

    Elburn Intergovernmental Agreement FAQ
     

    Q. What is the purpose of having an agreement with Elburn?  

    A. Elburn currently doesn’t have a park district, and their residents are looking for recreational opportunities. Creating this partnership will allow Elburn residents to purchase a membership with the Batavia Park District to receive resident rates.

    Q. What does this mean to a Batavia Park District tax payer?
     

    A. This agreement in no way effects the Batavia tax payer. Elburn residents can purchase a membership at a rate that is the equivalent to what a Batavia resident pays in taxes. This allows them to pay the resident rent for Batavia Park District programs, events, Quarry season passes, and rentals.

    A. Effective immediately

    Q. How much is a membership?
