Okay - we had 11,516 motorist in 24 hours, but Washington Street received 4 lanes; turning lanes and side walks = figure that. Would someone explain to me why the speed limit at the Brown Bridge schools area ( for 6 hours,- really..) are at 25 MPH and Salem Road and Oak Hill area schools and higher MPH.
well stated - may be it is time to start at the top admin to BOE and begin reassessing the people making decisions concerning education matters in Newton County.
Thank you again BOE - the more you get - the more you waste. It is time for me to say NO. I live on a budget, you should too. It is so simple to waste other people's earnings "IN THE NAME OF THE CHILDREN"
And the hits just keep on coming-------BOE needs, wants, demands, justifies higher school taxes - again....
My questions are now - and have been for several years - why does Porterdale need so many people on payroll. The city and county taxes are way too much for what we are receiving in return. Cleaning up the nasty would be a start.....
Is there an active senior citizens group to exempt us as property owners of the school tax in Newton County ? Please print the information if possible. Thank you
I should have said BOE - Now that have to nerve to want more money from taxes. Senior citizens - let us take notice that Newton County is the only county surrounding that does not drop school taxes at 62-65 ages. Their spending habits are above and beyond.
Exactly - the BOC, superintendent or the ones supposedly in charge of our school system; has done absolutely nothing to make the parents or citizens know we have the correct, knowledgeable people in place. This is really sad...
No - our education is NOT better than anyone, but we sure pay a lot more than most. Maybe it is time taxpayers said NO to more monies for the BOE. I have lost my benefits but I am to make sure my taxes pay for others - go figure.....I am not happy about any of these decisions by either board in Newton County.. What would happen, if other property owners are looking to leave this county as I am doing soon.
And- all of this could have been prevented and stopped by the Super and board from the beginning. Are you people in charge, so afraid of losing your "cushy" jobs, that you will not step out of your box......???? This complete matter is disgusting and sad. But , thank-you very much board, my school taxes keep on climbing.....
