State officials say board members wrong on threatened ‘takeover’

By Meaghan Downs

The Board of Education heard both pleas from staff and criticism from angry taxpayers during its special-called public hearing and meeting on the 2013 tax rates last Wednesday night.
Following a heated public hearing, the board approved 3-2 to set a 3 percent revenue increase tax rate at $5.70 per $1,000 assessed value, a 3.26 percent increase.
School board president James Sargent, vice president Scott Brown and board member Donna Crain Drury voted for the increase. Board members Lee Hahn and Roger McDowell voted against the rate.
