To the editor:
Regarding the physical plant and equipment levy: This is an opportunity for the voters to show their support for the school district. We have a large family and are not in favor of raising taxes or being subject to unnecessary fees; however, after attending a recent school board meeting, I better understand the need for this to pass. These funds will not be used for frivolous purposes. I am a firm believer in taking care of what we have and doing preventive maintenance to avoid being wasteful. As I understand it, that is the purpose for the needed PPEL funds. Basic and necessary roof repair and maintenance to avoid costly replacement, boiler repair and maintenance, etc. These are basic needs that will prevent greater expenses in the future.
I encourage you to ask questions, attend meetings, find out where your dollars will be used, and vote "yes" on Feb. 5.
