Can You Afford A 12-15% School Tax Increase?

  
This will be in addition to the increase the BOE already approved for those who do not get the increased Senior Income Exemption AND in addition to any increased assessment for which you've already been notified.

If these double digit numbers make you nervous, then please notify the Supt. Steve Achramovitch ASAP with YOUR LIST OF PROPOSED BUDGET REDUCTIONS.

Email him @  Steve.Achramovitch@greece.k12.ny.us

You could well be right but what are you basing this increase on. I haven't seen any figures yet?

To 3:35PM ~~ It's been quietly discussed at various meetings (the tax rate impact) and I've been following district budget development long enough to have a pretty good sense of the budget increase impacts anyway ;)

If Uncle Dave actually gets his way with the proposed State Aid decreases (about another $8 million), this WILL be reality. GCSD already whittled back by around $7 million from their orig. proposed budget of $207+ million.

can we cut the budget for the union tees?

Could you send the email of the BOE members instead. Seems more appropriate.

To 7:54PM ~~ Budget recommendations are the responsibility of the Supt. who presents what's in or out to the BOE who approve or disapprove all portions of it. If you really want their email addresses, they are on BoardDocs (https://www.boarddocs.com/ny/greece/Board.nsf/Public?OpenFrameSet) on the right hand side of the page.

If you're going to spend the time to write a politician, print it, put it in an envelope and mail it to their house.

The technique definitely gets their attention, once when the wife jumps on em, a second time when they paranoid that you know where they live, and a third time when they have to haul it to the trash pickup.
Anything sent to a politician's office is a waste of time.

11: 47: I don't think that is what happens when their wife jumps on them but I could be wrong.
