It is a hard time to be asking people for more money. Everything is costing more and everyone has less money.

Vote no for the school tax levy. This is crazy. 94 dollars per 1000. Your property tax will almost double on the year. This is the poorest county in the state, yet a few have champagne taste and want the rest of us with beer pocket books to pay for it. Vote No. If they knew how to manage money they would not have this problem.

I'm voting NO. No way am I voting for a tax levy. Been layed off for over a year. Can't hardly pay the mortgage or insurance now let alone increased property taxes
Also, I think only Home OWNERS should be allowed to vote on the Levy.

why do we have a person who makes up the lunch menu's at about 78,000 yr when the head cooks do the brunt of the work ? what about the lawn tractor's that the big shots just had to have and then contracted out the lawn service not using the tractor's they had purchased to mow the school lawns but I guess they did bring back the lawn tractor's where could they have been???? kinda looks like someone needed the lawn tractor's worse than the school system, here's an idea for our big spenders over at central office start cutting the fat where it needs to be cut AT THE TOP do we really need asst. for asst everyone over there has a secratary or an asst, and do you high rollers really need to make what you are making? I dont think so !!! lets fix the problem instead of taxing it

lets not forget that for some reason this nice little county has trouble counting vote's every year it seem's that the machine seems to quit or go bonkers every time could this be the reason the tax levy's pass year after year , I was always taught that if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and talks like a duck thats because it is a duck!!!!! lets stop the fraud !!! now lets talk about the farm deal in the county why is it that the same people always seem to get the money first even before the rest of us know about it shouldnt it be a level playing field for everyone or will we let the politics continue to pad the pockets ???

I agree completely about voting no for the tax levy. Nothing at all against renters but if you do not own property or pay property taxes you should not be allowed to vote on this issue. So many people are out of work or are going to get laid off....timing is bad for this levy I AM VOTING NO!!!!!!!!

They are asking the taxpayers for more money because there are increases in health care benefit costs and decreases in school funding?????????? I work a factory job with no health care benefits and cannot afford private health insurance.I pay taxes enough so federal,state,and county workers can have health insurance.Many companies have dropped health insurance or increased copays. Well,there is your solution for the health care cost. Do not be asking people who cannot afford their own health insurance to pay for yours.PAY FOR YOUR OWN.Everything that goes up in price affects everyone and you are not so special that everyone should pay your increase in cost. Pay it yourself like the rest of us have to.

Renters better realize, higher property taxes mean higher Rent. Not sure how HUD/ Section 8 works. Can a Landlord raise the rent if they accept HUD?

Will there be a school tax levy on the ballot in November? Is everybody at the school very quiet because they want to sneak it on the ballot.

Anybody heard anything about this?

Here is exactly what is wrong with our schools.
Number 17.
Propaganda being promoted in the schools instead of teaching reading, writing and arithmetic.
A whole day of wandering around, playing ball, watching propaganda on TV while Teachers get paid to slam it at them.
