Los Alamos Pubic Schools is highly regarded for academic excellence and make Los Alamos a desirable place to live. We must ensure that the schools have classrooms and facilities that live up to this reputation. I applaud the school district for formulating a plan to revitalize aging school facilities including the high school, middle school and Aspen Elementary School.
As a community we need to support this plan; however now is not a good time for an increased tax burden on our citizens. Many people have lost their jobs, several homes are in foreclosure, more than 400 homes are on the market and people are paying considerably more for gas relative to just a few years ago. We should not be indifferent to these conditions by expecting citizens to now pay more property tax.
The school district can implement a facility repair plan without homeowners paying more property tax if the school district and the county work together, since both of these government bodies receive property tax revenue. The county receives much more revenue from gross receipts tax than from property tax.
