Between bonds and the supplemental levy, as a home owner we are paying over $200 that will continue to be needed to be paid for the next ten years. I am a senior citizen on a fixed income and plan to vote no on the bond and encourage others to do the same. The people voted it down once, why keep pushing the bond down people’s throats when the people already spoke? At the end of Dr. Cox’s editorial was “High School Next Year?” why are you wanting a new high school with all the money spent on improving the existing one, that we as tax payers are still paying for and will be paying for another ten years? Vote no, no, no to the school bond!
Also, I find it irritating that the City of Rupert is redoing sidewalks and road around the square. The city redid the sidewalks twice in one year not too long ago. Who cares if people can eat out in front a business? Again as a senior citizen I feel that is a waste of our tax money. People in the country, who do not have to pay for the cost of the square posted on Facebook for voters to vote yes. Maybe they wouldn’t be so eager if they were taxed also for needless projects in city limits.
