Parents Form Group To Push District 186 Tax Referendum


Several parents upset about recent budget cuts in Springfield public schools have now formed a group that plans to put a property tax referendum on the November 2014 ballot.

 

"Invest in 186" is being spearheaded by that parents' group, which includes former school board candidate Katharine Eastvold.  Appearing live on 970 WMAY's "Jim Leach Show," Eastvold acknowledged that tax hike votes are always a tough sell in Springfield... but she says the impact of the recent cuts may be enough to persuade local voters to approve a referendum for the first time in 30 years.

 

The group hasn't decided yet how large a property tax increase it will seek.
