To all Northville residents, what we have to is come to all B. O. E. meetings starting 2/11/14. We the people can make a lot of changes in our district, in our community.

tax, I agree it is doomed, but I think it's doomed for everyone, including teachers and admins. Where are they going to make up almost $800,000...that's the amount with Edinburg leaving, almost $400,000, and the 6 elem teachers who now aren't being cut is another $400,000 expenditure. Edinburg has made it clear they are going to B'dalbin if the merger passes. How will they come up with this money??...either raise taxes, and/or cut more student programs--a lose/lose for everyone.

Doomed like the Oppenheim and St. Johnsville merger. All for the teachers and admins.

48,7% difference in the tax rates! Northville's rate goes up $186 per 1000 on assessed value, Mayfield goes down $687.67. Northville, do you want to carry Mayfield forever?

Q- How much of the incentive aid is going toward student programs? A- Zero, it's all going toward the tax rate gap..which has doomed this from the start. This is not a good deal for ANYONE.

Keep it as is, don't look for complications and tax increases.

The only thing guaranteed with the merger is that taxes will go up in a very depressed region,the biggest employer and the most lucrative jobs are within the school system whose salary's and out of control benefits are paid by the already overburdened tax payer.
