Dist. 211 taxpayers already hit their max

Success - Article sent! close

Dave Torres of District 211 explained in a recent Daily Herald (Oct. 19) article that the district is planning to increase the tax levy by 3.5 percent, which is the maximum that is allowed, because without maxxing out the levy the district could face problems down the line.

Did Dave ever consider that the citizens paying the bill are facing problems right now? A high school education in District 211 costs taxpayers more than $88,000 per student. Isn't this enough?
