It’s happening, folks. We’re already 2 meetings deep into the Future Planning Advisory Committee Hunger Games and the Gamemakers have permitted the public to attend to a hand-select meeting: Meeting #3.*
WHO: You. You’re going, right?
WHEN: March 19th at 7 PM
WHERE: District Administrative Building
WHAT: The topic is “school funding.” The Administrator of the County Board of Taxation, Martin Guhl, will be discussing how school taxes are apportioned among towns in a regional school district
You: No. I meant, “WHAT?!?!”
Yup. I got the email today at 5:02 pm from Dr. Smith. Today. The day before the meeting. Also, it isn’t on the school district’s website calendar.
If you want to read about property taxes, equalization ratios, and some of the basics on how tax assessments are put together, Ryan Kennedy has already written a post here about them.
One or more of the MercerMe team will see you in the “arena” tomorrow night. We’ll be doing a bit of live tweeting (so follow us on twitter @mercermenj) and then follow it up with a summary post.
*The committee, according to the February meeting minutes, decided as a group to keep the majority of the meetings closed to the public unless a speaker would be presenting to the committee.
