The JCPS Board of Education, today, announced a “Tax Rate Hearing” for this coming Tuesday at 5:30 PM “for the purpose of hearing public comments regarding a proposed 2023-24 General Fund tax levy of at most 80.0 cents on real property and at most 80.0 cents on personal property.”
At a “Special Meeting” scheduled at 6:00 PM, Superintendent Marty Pollio will recommend the Board of Education approve the proposed tax rate, opening the door for another heated and controversial debate prior to the November election.
I’m all for fully funded @JCPSKY schools but I’m not for blank checks for leaders to spend however they want, nor lack of transparency and accountability after it’s spent. The BOE meets Tuesday to vote on another >4% tax increase, making it likely to wind up on November’s ballot. pic.twitter.com/qR5PoLOBGV— Dear JCPS (@Dear_JCPS) June 16, 2023
