    Again MHSD wishes to reach into our pockets with little regard. Enough is enough.

    No one is forcing you to read them. Sorry if me being a concerned taxpayer that would like for those entrusted to use the tax monies wisely bothers you. But that is your issue and it will not stop me from voicing my opinion in a civil manner without degrading another person or telling them to go away when I do not agree with their stance. Have a nice day.

  • I wish I could overspend on my income and have a sugarmomma/taxpayer to hit up to cover my incompetence. My income is basically at 2009 levels and I spend accordingly.

    Will the public have an accounting of the Maintenance Levy disbursements at school year end?

  • Werborg, It's interesting to see how your views have changed.

    School district to ask for supplemental levy

    What we need is for the district to learn to live in the budget. If That means that the administrators need to take a pay cut from their 90K+ a year for the fat cats in the district than so be it. This district does not warrant that kind of money. They need to keep out of our pockets already. People to day can hardly afford to put food on the table and gas in their cars let alone to continue with this levy. We as taxpayers can not afford to continue with this levy year after year. start cutting pay at the top!!!!
