Yes, and another option we have is to vote NO. Why should I have to move? Make the parents who have kids pay extra for all the frills (football, baseball, cheerleading, band, etc)...  (May 2, 2008 | post #140)

Yes, you are correct. Must be why I see all of the for sale signs all over Springboro - everyone looking to get out of an area with unfair property taxes. Think of what the glut of houses on th market will do to the property values of those of us that remain... Once again, we will be voting no and most of our Springboro friends, from what I've heard, will be doing the same.  (Apr 30, 2008 | post #135)

This is the one thing I would agree with you on and seems reasonable. We need an entirely new school board and a replacement for Baker.  (Mar 5, 2008 | post #109)

That's nice and I am happy for you. But is it the taxpayer's responsibility to fully fund your self exploration. What if one kid came up and said "I'd really like to be like Homer Simspon and work at a nuclear reactor." Are the local Springboro taxpayer's on the hook to pay for and build a nuclear reactor for this kid to "explore his possibilities "? No. You give him the basic skills of math, science and writing to help him pursue these options in college. High school is supposed to be the basics - you go to college or a trade school to specialize.  (Mar 4, 2008 | post #82)

By the way, how do we get that Baker out of office. Is he elected or appointed by the school board? I would next like to be able to vote him out if possible.  (Mar 4, 2008 | post #76)

For those voting 'yes' - you might as well get in your car, drive down to the school board building, take out your wallet, open it up and tell them to take whatever they want; then go ahead and schedule a time with them in 3-4 months to do it again... There is obviously no end to their attempts at these levies.  (Mar 4, 2008 | post #68)

Yep, same here - I've already voted! Actually two levies, right?  (Mar 4, 2008 | post #67)

If you were only interested in presenting the facts I don't understand why you would go under multiple ids to do so; unless you were purposefully being misleading.  (Mar 2, 2008 | post #46)

Nice try "reduced taxes a reality", "Vote No and watch", and "Vote YES". All - don't be fooled "reduced taxes a reality", "Vote No and watch", and "Vote YES" are probably all the same person. Three "yes" postings in a matter of 20 minutes all in support of "BOTH" levies... Suspicious. Someone wanting us to believe there is more 'yes' support than there really is. Look at all (or lack there of) yard signs in people's yards for a real gauge of support for this levy. Already voted no for BOTH levies...  (Mar 2, 2008 | post #43)

David - love the line "The money tree is empty right now." :-) Because that is what the school board thinks of us; one big, unending, ever-producing, money tree... That line of thinking needs to stop.  (Mar 2, 2008 | post #39)

From daytondailynews.co m this morning: "Springboro Schools Voters in the school district will see on their ballots a five-year emergency renewal for 10.05 mills and a continuing 5.99 mill levy to fund operating expenses. Owners of $200,000 homes would pay about $262 more a year in property taxes for the new money and continue to pay about $616 a year to fund the renewal, according to county estimates." Figure out how much this levy and renewal will cost you. Man, that renewal is huge. This was sold to us three years ago as a temporary levy and supposed to roll off now. Now they not only want use to renew it but want to add on more. There is very poor planning going on someplace. It is very easy to go to the taxpayers and ask for more money - it is much harder to manage, plan and implement cut backs which the rest of us have to do along with any business. Which is our school district doing? The easy route of course.  (Mar 2, 2008 | post #38)

Took advantage of the early voting today (Saturday). It took about 45 minutes but well worth it. I am afraid the polls will be a mess on Tuesday as well and wanted to make sure I got my NO votes in, in case something happens Tuesday and I can't make it in. Also, they keep talking about all of this being for the children, it's for the children, it's our children's future, etc. What I have read seems like the increase is more for the teachers and administrators future. Increase in health insurance, more payment into retirement accounts, across the board 4.65% pay increase, etc. Whose best interest are these levies really in?  (Mar 1, 2008 | post #35)

Correction - "or single folks that to do contribute to the "issue"? " should be "do not contribute to the issue"...  (Feb 27, 2008 | post #13)

Springboro Resident - curious why you believe only seniors citizens should get some type of refund for this proposed tax increase. What about the folks that are recently laid off and on a fixed income or single folks that to do contribute to the "issue"? Pay for play would solve these issues - only parents with kids would pay the extra leaving taxes the same for seniors and singles who do not use the system...  (Feb 27, 2008 | post #12)
