Basehor residents turn out in droves to recall mayor, 2 council members

Message to Box, Breuer and Miles -- be judicious in your appointments - no one wants a continuation of the good ole boys club and you could suffer the same fate!

District touts $39.9 million bond issue allocations

"Though the projects have come in under budget, the district has raised its bond mill levy by about 12 mills since 2007, when the bond issue was passed. When the district proposed the bond issue, it projected an increase of about 9 mills.

Howard said the higher-than-expected increase could be chalked up to the housing market downturn that has taken place since then. Property values have not grown at the rate projected at the time the bill was passed, meaning the district had to raise its levy by a higher percentage to meet its bond obligations.

A mill is $1 in taxes for every $1,000 in assessed property valuation."

The bond issue was not passed for a new track and artificial turf for the football field. If the projects came in under budget then the money should not be spent and the taxpayers should get the break. Particularly in light of the fact that the bond only passed by 35 votes and that was after how many attempts?

In this day when people are having trouble making ends meet due to the economy it is unconscionable to spend money on non-essentials just because you can. That's what got this country into the financial mess it's in now.

SHAME on Superintendent Howard and the rest of the school board

All the other mulicipalities in the KC Area are getting stimulus money for this type of work. Why can't this be handled the same way?
