I guess the world is not turning in Deer Park. This budget and spending is out of control. Its time for a total protest from homeowners to shout out to the Governor we need government intervention for this dysfunctional system and its failing numbers in national reports.
This budget is out of control and the students are not doing well according to Newsday reports on the school district. I need to add that on this vote ,only 1848 people voted. Most had to come to school because art presentations and other school functions were purposely planned that evening to get the burnt out parents in to vote yes. Governor Coumo, take this mess down and all the corrupt leadership throughout Long Island

We are just screaming into the wind. Local businesses don't give receipts so they aren;t paying a fair share of taxes. Realize over $ 100 million a year for this towns school district really is highway robbery,but its legal........

Just another town lost in corruption and disparity. This is the armpit of Babylon Town. The main road Deer Park Avenue was just swept by the state department of highways after 20 years. Babylon town provide inconsistent services to the area.
Odd the school taxes go up every year and cost over runs reveal poor management. Even the superintendent earns over $200,000 a year and there are perks to,my friends. Overloaded administrators earning over $125,000 a year is common and it uses propaganda to make it all look like its woth the burden on the taxpayers.
Add, 9-11, taxes went up, add economic downturn, taxes went up again. Now with hurricane Sahdy, what do you think these losers running the school district is going to ask the taxpayers to foot the bill for? There are now home foreclosures throughout the community and the hew homeowners are lackluster and tax cheat business owners are throughout the geographic area, you need to get a receipt folks,,,,
Best that the state consolidates all these school districts and do away with the secret group at the top running things. Most homeowners are burnt out from working two and three jobs to even go to vote.

Here we go again. Do we have more money?
The Deer Park schools need more. So if you have more money vote yes, oh I forgot "for the children:.
We all know that $101,000,000 is not enough for the town of Deer Park.

Good luck and buy your plywood now, because more houses will be boarded up and foreclosed on.

Thanks for the great job and the great job the school board is doing. Next year ask for $200 million. We'll get them to college somehow, even if no jobs are available. Dont forget to give the top administration a raise also and free phones and gas.....

You just can't keep raising school taxes year in and year out, every year.
Poor managing of operations and cost are the reason. Ignorant management will never sell a broken operation to taxpayers working two and three jobs and cant get home before 9PM.
The governor needs to revamp the LI school operation. We have way to many managers,and "deputies and "superintendents. We may need one superintendent in each county,one for Nassau and one for Suffolk.
We desperately need a State Inspector General to oversee the layers and layers and layers of management and who decides what money can be spent on what.
In deer park they spent over $100,000 for laptop computers for a few years now , for the 5th grade. Why the 5th grade and who negotiated the deal???
They now after a few years need repairs to the high school roof, but it was redne less then 10 years ago. Who did the roof replacement and who overseen its replacement. Who got gifts from the contractor and freebies? We need the governor to swipe these school districts clean. If it was New York City , they would be found corrupt and held accountable. On LI who has been held accountable and who oversees what?....No one !!

$103,670,546-YEAR 2013 budget, Isn't that way to much ?

$101,218,000-Year 2012 budget, yep, you were scammed then to....

$95,000,000-year 2011 budget, does this appear to be a well managed operation and does this appear to be an institution trying to save money or spend money ?
