LEVIES: Give taxpayers raise

| February 23, 2021 1:00 AM

I am concerned about the school levies before the taxpayers. Three school districts here in Kootenai County, Post Falls, Rathdrum and Coeur d’Alene, all want more money, about $34 million. I think it’s about time to give the taxpayers more money, say a 10% raise. Think what that would do to your tax bill.

Stop the waste. The schools should do what we have to do, tighten our belt, when they need money. What about us taxpayers? We are at the end of our belts. Another thought might be to combine the three school districts into one. Think of the money we as taxpayers could save. Big list. I think a no vote will be my option.
