They tried this twice a few years back and both times the residents voted it down now here we go again! Who in their mind in this economy would try and raise taxes we pay enough on our property tax including not only in our homes but also on our cars, boats campers and so on. If the school would use their tax money right they wouldn't need more their will be a petition coming around we need around 2000 signature to get it put to a vote and then we need all the residents support to get this voted down again!!!!

It was told at the meeting that 48% of children in the school live out of district , so those parents are not paying the high property tax that we are and would not be paying this tax either . We need new people to run for school board in westwood !!!

I just saw funeral guy Jeff Preston pushing this on WSAZ news. Last I saw his name he was pushing booze sale on Sunday. You can't help buy wonder why they had this hearing just after Christmas. Who has any extra money for taxes? Geezzzz

I don't know if you know but we already pay one of the highest property rates on eastern ky and 48% of the students don't live in the Fairview district so there therefore they don't pat property tax or they won't pay utilities tax either we can no longer pay more for out of district students to come in just to play sports while our kids set on the bench and watch them play. We don't hate kids we just don't want more taxes!

you better figure again on the amount we would pay my utilities which include cable cell phone and etc total about $1000.00 so that makes me pay 30 a month a total of $360 a year on top of the $900 a year on my house tax and $420 for my automobiles I think I pay my fair share so don't say I hate the kids!!!!!!!!!!

Don't use the poor kids, if their parents have to pay more they are taking food right out of the kids mouth the school lunches might be all the have to eat!

Your right he is not the type of person Fairview needs to represent them, let alone his reputation how he treated his family and ex wives and other people wife I think this a little bit of Harper valley PTA if we tell the truth about all of them

Calling it "Harper Valley PTA" is totally right! I'll sure not take my family to Preston in time of need. Fairview has learn to live within their means. Most of us don't have extra $$$$ for more taxes.
