New Tax Hike Plan Floated By Springfield School Board Member


There is now more than one tax hike proposal under discussion by the Springfield school board.

 

Board vice-president Adam Lopez on Monday recommended that the board consider another attempt at a countywide sales tax increase that could pay for school construction projects.  Such an attempt failed in 2010, but Lopez says the idea has the support of several nearby school superintendents -- if District 186 takes the lead.

 

But the idea could conflict with plans from a parents group to seek a property tax increase next year.  While the sales tax could only be used for school construction and improvement projects, a property tax hike could be used for direct classroom and educational expenses.  The school board plans to discuss both ideas at its next meeting.
