Springfield school board president Chuck Flamini says it's almost certain that the board will seek some kind of tax increase next year in an effort to avoid another round of deep budget cuts. But he says any attempt is almost certain to be a tough sell.
A parents group is proposing a four-year temporary property tax increase that could cost the average Springfield homeowner between six and twelve dollars a month extra. But board vice-president Adam Lopez is pushing a sales tax hike that could be used for school facilities countywide.
Flamini expects a decision sometime in the spring.
