The county is currently struggling to finance the White Run Reservoir with a budget estimated at $50 - $60M. This expensive project would provide water for projected growth and development that might happen. The water project is to take care of possible, future needs. The school project is to take care of actual, current needs. We can't do both at once. We already have overcrowding issues at our schools that must be addressed now. It would be simply irresponsible for our county leaders to continue their desperate attempts at financing the current scope of the water project at the expense of our schools.
Citizens should take the opportunity that the revised agenda provides to remind our representatives to exercise fiscal responsibility and budgetary restraint; and to prioritize real, current needs over possible future ones. Please plan to attend the BoS meeting and share your concerns Tuesday (July 25th) evening. The current board welcomes input from the public.
