Last fall, the district commissioned a survey with your tax dollars. What was stated loud and clear is the residents are not supportive of an unneeded levy. Only 36.8% of those surveyed were supportive of a 7.9 mill operating levy and no-additional mills bond levy.
And that support fell when the cost was conveyed to those being surveyed. Even after being made aware of the threatened cuts, 58.5% stated they were less likely to support the issues once the $242 per $100,000 accessed valuation was stated.
First Powell taxpayers defeated their income tax issue. Now it is time for the district taxpayers to stand up against out-of-control district spending.
