Tax payer 101

United States

#1 Dec 19, 2012
Heard that the tax payer money that was set aside to purchase new school buses was not going to be used to buy any. Does anyone know what that money will be used for or where it will go? Just wondering where the tax money will go. Thank you

They can't keep enough drivers for the ones they got.

Don't ask why they can't keep any drivers and don't ask where the money goes

Who set it aside? Any set aside for buses would be through the general fund. It's just general fund money and if they set aside and need something else they can unset it. It's not like the state says here's a bunch of money go buy buses. Schools either buy them through the general fund or they borrow the money. If they borrow the money they never even see any cash, just the buses. The Board could say let's set aside X dollars for buses but there's nothing legally binding about it.

And some of them don't know how to drive. One bus basically forced me off the road and all Claude Maggard could say is, "well, in her defense she's a new driver".

Couldn't believe he actually thought that made it OK! This school district and the board is a joke.

There will be no new buses because that would be spending the tax payers money on something for the kids

LC passed one of the biggest property tax increases in the state under the premise of building buildings. I went to the meeting. Nobody said a word. Figured there was no use me saying anything, just went with the status quo.

What does age have to do with the position? It's not like he has the authority to spend tax payer money where ever he wants. Every dime spent has to be approved by someone higher than him. He just makes sure the books look alright and all the spending programs are ran properly.

Rookie drivers are dangerous! Especaially when nobody can obey the rules because the boss won't let them. They give the new buses to the same ones year after year. They lie!

Teach the children and teach them well. Opinions and political beliefs will be taught at home. Screw more money. Use what you get for real education instead of programming.

The trouble with school shootings is they shoot students.

Ok that's enough, dont think this won't be investigated with the shootings comments. I'm a parent and I take that as a threat for my child. This will be brought to attention.

so is all the tax money up for grabs and not set aside for any certain things? Is money for the buses tax money or money the state gives each school district?
