Hill to Spotsylvania County: 11%

$9.5 million increase over previous year

Spotsylvania Superintendent Jerry Hill demanded an 11% increase in the Spotsy school budget, an increase of $9.5 million:

Last night, Hill told the School Board the county can provide $3.4 million of the requested $9.5 million increase if the 86-cent property-tax rate remains the same.

That would leave the county to provide the school system with another $6.1 million.

Which means a 12 cent tax hike equating to a $240 tax increase in property taxes forf a home valued at $200,000.

Will Spotsylvania see an 11% increase in the quality of education? I think not. It’s about time the school board live within their means.
