After learning about the failure to pass the outrageous 6.12 percent budget in Levittown, I went to the district home page to find the following information. “At its May 26, 2010 meeting, the Board of Education will consider options pursuant to this budget vote. The options include: a) resubmitting the same budget to the voters of the district on June 15, 2010; b) resubmitting a reduced budget to the voters of the district on June 15, 2010; or c) forgoing a second budget vote, and adopting a contingency budget for the 2010-2011 school year.”
Why would the district resubmit the same budget when so many Levittown residents voted no the first time? I am sure once all of the residents find out that this is even a possibility, they will mark their calendars for another no vote on June 15.
In fairness to the residents of Levittown who are drowning in school taxes, please consider option b.
