What the council is voting on is a 1.5% tax increase for the schools. For a South Portland resident who owns a home with an assessed value of $200,000, the increase would add $26 to the school portion of the annual property tax bill.
- I support a 1.5% tax increase in the property tax rate; and
- I support building and renovating the South Portland High School
Again, City Council is NOT hearing from a large enough number of residents who support schools.
Your voice is so important to this process!
The city council will vote on the school budget April 26. Residents will vote May 6 whether to validate it.
