This is in regard to the general obligation bond referendum that will appear on the ballot Nov. 6 for the Maple School District.
The district says this refinancing project will save $200,000 over the next 7 years. Then why is it necessary to raise the property tax rate by $.50 on every $1,000 of valuation, which is $405,152 a year, or $2,836,065 over the next seven years.
It seems to me that if this is how our School Board goes about saving money, please stop.
