Sales tax still at issue for city council

This year the Baldwin residents will receive a additional 9 plus mill levy increase for the new school! Now more taxes from the city when Baldwin already pays more taxes than any other area in Douglas County. It's time Baldwin wakes up and lives within it's means NO MORE TAXES!!!!!!!!!!!

Who voted for the School Bond

Mr. Brown

I agree that Baker students should have the right to vote the way they like but what I dsisagree with is Baker holding a assembly asking students to vote for the school bond, and if it passed, this would give Baker the oportunity to purchase the land. Baker should have stayed out of the vote since they had a interest in the land.

Cocerned about spending!

This a response to Kermit: It's my understanding a large organization in Baldwin wanted the ground where the primary center sits on. It's my understanding that this organization had a assembly and asked all eligible voters to vote for the bond issue so this ground would become available. The problem is, all these voters do not own real estate in Baldwin and will be gone within 4 to 5 years and leave the burden of paying for the school to the taxpayers. This is a sad way of getting a new school and you would think the school board and the supt. knew of this.
