Cocerned about spending!
I would like to compliment the city council with their decision to curtail spending in these hard times. It is much appreciated. I do have a concern with the School district with their apparent continued high spending and the possibliity of reduced state aid to the schools next year. I feel the board has no concern with the taxpayer burden. With the posssibility of reduced aid from the state will the school district again next year raise the tax burden to the local taxpayers? New schools are nice and, along with ball fields and new auditoriums but you really need to distinguish the difference between real need and would be nice to have. It would be nice if all concerned would tighten their belts a little during the hard times we are facing instead of spending more.
