School board discusses tax impact for proposed $29M budget

The Springfield School Board on Monday, Feb. 20 discussed the potential tax impact of the proposed $29,335,336 Fiscal Year 2018 school district budget.



  1. So, the people making lots of money see their taxes go down, and retirees on a low, fixed income see their taxes go up. And here I thought this town was progressive! (Yeah, I know people of limited means pay less overall; I'm just saying!)

  2. i saw a article the other day in the Bratt reformer,it said bratt's school budget was less then $26 million,why is a school district that's bigger then ours have a smaller budget ?

  3. Vote NO! Enough is enough. we're taxed to death and this town tears down its tax base.

    1. Considering squalid s**tholes part of the "tax base" is one of the problems here. The fact that some people would rather live with blight, and the crime that goes with it, than pay taxes is disturbing, to say the least. If you really want to live with filth, there are inner-city ghettos and dive trailer parks all over America; the taxes are low, and so are the people. Maybe you would enjoy it there.
