March 19, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. at Hamburg High School the 2013-14 school budget will be presented at a school community forum.
Come one, Come all
This is your chance to hear the Superintendent and School Business Officer tell you that the upcoming budget proposal carries an 8.25 % tax levy increase, which is above the tax cap.
This increase will require over 60% voter approval at the May School Budget Vote.
School community members your attendance at this meeting is important.
You will have the chance to hear Mr. Achramovitch, who makes in excess of $175,000 in salary and benefits, tell you that the tax levy is going up by an skyrocketing 8.25 %.
What will this do to your tax bill?
This compares to a tax levy increase in Orchard Park Schools of 3.25%.
It appears that this is an extraordinary budget.
Hamburg Schools is going to ask over 60% of those who show up to vote in May to increase their taxes by a record amount.
It is your duty taxpayers to demand an transparent look at all the district expenses.
As has been reported by Concerned Hamburger many times, Hamburg Schools is spending your tax dollars on needless consultants and lawyers.
So before you open your wallet to give Hamburg Schools more of your hard earned money, perhaps it would be prudent to demand a real look at where your money is going.
