Letter about R-P referendum

Letter about R-P referendum

To the Editor,

I think everyone in Rushford would love to have a new school. The thing that concerns me is the cost to the tax payers. $15,000,000 is not something to deal with lightly. I know that the interest rates are very low, but we would still be paying millions in interest. It looks like the state has no plan at this time to help and I don’t think we should figure in our plans that we will get any help in the future.

Like everyone else, I have noticed my taxes climb every year since we moved into our house 18 years ago. When the city or county decides to raise it one percent or two percent each year it doesn’t look like much, but over a number of years it gets to be a lot. Add the fact that the value of our homes have gone down and some of us are paying double mortgages for the homes we live in, it gets to be a burden.

We also have to look at the fact that a lot of people in our town are on fixed incomes. I heard that there are a lot more people in our area having to use the food shelf. In the paper I saw that the school has a foundation now. I thought this would be great for a new school but it is for scholarships. Maybe we could set up a place in the foundation for a building fund. We could send memorials there. For the people that really want the school, maybe there would be a way that they could give the amount that their taxes would go up to this fund or for others they could give what they feel they could afford and add it to their taxes. Maybe we could do fund raisers. I may be wrong but I feel we need to start some sort of a nest egg to get this thing rolling instead of just waiting and hoping the state will give it to us. Have an option to do something besides a yes or no vote and maybe build a complete new school instead of a partial fix while keeping the high school that is the main problem.
