Take all you can from the taypayer.

Don't consider anything else.

As long as it is legal, but still immoral, it doesn't matter does it.

@Displaced. the reason there was no mention was because they want to get it in under the radar.

This newspaper had an online article where this was coming up for a school board vote, then pulled the article after a couple of hours.

Not very unbiased reporting, eh.

The school board could increase the levy to where other counties in the northern panhandle have theirs: 98% and up.

With cuts to education from the Federal & State government, this "windfall" will most likely go towards preventing any cuts in service.

@mikeyd. We will see what the money is used for in the new budget. I have a feeling it won't be going to increase salaries. Not that educators don't deserve an increase.

Fleecing the residents once again!!

Residents need to FIGHT every attempt at raising their property taxes!!

Make them PROVE that your property has "increased" in value!!

And as I've said before, these school systems have MASSIVE payrolls with EXCESSIVE salaries and un-needed positions soaking up 90% of the funds!

Time to make MASSIVE cuts starting at the TOP!!!
