Resident (In District) vs. Nonresidents (Out of District)
It's sometimes difficult to figure out if you're considered a park district resident (in district) or nonresident (out of district). If your house address has four digits and you live within the incorporated village boundaries of Round Lake, Round Lake Beach, Round Lake Park, Round Lake Heights or Hainesville, you are a resident of the Round Lake Area Park District. If you are unsure if you are a district resident check your voter's registration card which identifies all the taxing districts you live in, or check the Lake County's web site, www.lakecountyil.gov/199/Property-Taxes. This site will allow you to see, by your home address, what taxing districts you live in. Or, if all else fails, call us!
