School Board Committee Discusses Tax Hike Referendum


The Springfield School Board's finance committee has begun a preliminary discussion of the issues surrounding a possible future tax hike referendum.

 

Committee chair Candace Mueller says the discussion was part of a broader conversation about revenues, prompted by citizens who have been asking why all of the district's budget talks so far have centered exclusively on proposed cuts, and not on sources of new revenue.

 

Mueller says she is non-committal on whether the district should seek a tax increase, but says the fact that community members are talking about it means it's an issue that should be considered.  Board members say they want to hear more about when such a referendum could be held... and if it passed, when the new revenue would be available.
