LOL Amazing...As another poster stated we needed to raise the school taxes because state aid is decreasing except aid has increased so we still are going to raise taxes.. Same %$#$ different year..

Agree that N'ville residents should overwhelmingly support the budget. But disagree about the merger. From what I've heard, the "mistakes" were made by the District by presenting a biased merger study/report, and grossly misrepresenting revenue figures. But that's in the past, I agree that you can't have it both ways... now everybody needs to come together and vote for the budget. And N'ville & Mayfield need to look ahead to sharing more services.

Let's hope there is substantial support for this budget after the mistake of turning down the merger vote. You can not have it both ways! I commend the Board for its hard work

Every school budget should be voted down this year! Year after year for the last 4 years we have heard "State Aid has been decreased, so taxes must go up" Well many districts got an increase this year, time to "spread the wealth" to the taxpayers this year and give them a 0% tax hike!

We would not be the first area in the state to have a non-operating school district.

The increase is miniscule compared to what would have happened with the merger. Northville and Mayfield should still look at combining some services..

Northville, you are going in precisely the wrong direction. The population of the area is decreasing, not increasing, and the "educational process" should concentrate on "education" rather than the expansion of the educational fiefdom. Get smart, Northville - the time is short!
