Reader: Vote no on EV bond issue

Once again on Sept. 11 we are being asked to approve a $9.95 million bond issue for Easton Valley schools. Again I feel a no vote is proper. The school has over $1 million a year coming in from other taxes already.

The 33-cent PPEL tax the state allows is $84,862.

The $1.34 PPEL tax approved by voters is $344,598.

The 1 percent sales tax usage approved by voters is $583,569.

The 4 percent income surtax that was not approved by voters is $133,988.

The total of these is $1,147,017. They need to work with the money they have. The last time they asked for this much money they projected a $2.70 per thousand increase on our property taxes. Again, I ask you to vote no.
