Education proponents state their case
TAYLORVILLE — “This time, it’s the community that is really asking, not the school,” said Citizens for Education (CFE) member Melisa Livingston of the tax referendum that will appear on the ballot of the upcoming April consolidated election. “We are asking for a property tax increase, there is no disputing that, but there is a big misconception that this only benefits people with children in school. That’s just not the case; the viability of our school system affects the local job market, it affects small businesses, and it affects our property values. Lower property values mean lower taxes, but that means less revenue for the city, which weakens their ability to maintain services and infrastructure. This decision affects all of us.”
