Of course the money comes from taxpayers. The SF tax rate will remain unchanged. That money is either used by us or by some other district.

Try not to pay your taxes and let me know how you make out.

The money is budgeted by NYS. If it doesn't come to Seneca Falls, it will go to some other school district. That's the way the system works. Change the system if you don't like it, oh that's right you and your ilk make up the minority, it is the majority that make the decisions and right niw the majority chooses the state to operate this way.

very backwards way in thinking, for you and the state......great example though of why the system is broke and why the state is in the position it's in.

Yes, given all the negative response generated here by the usual 4 (or so) irate forum posters, the district has decided to revert Bracht Field back to the useless cow pasture it was for the prior 40 years.
They now plan to grow corn to raise monies for future construction.

And, henceforth any available state building funds will, in good conscience, be rejected in favor of districts with a smaller tax base. (Wait! Are there any??)

Way to go curmudgeons! See you at the Clyde game??
No, I guess not.

you did not understand the question

if a local resident does not pay their school taxes how will the school system get the money from the homeowner?

if property taxes are not paid then the county forecloses on the property

can the school foreclose on a property if the school taxes are not paid?

Unpaid school taxes are returned to the county for collection. The county can foreclose on all but Indian property.

Says you, obviously the majority of the state feels differently. But since the system is what it is why would we turn down money only to have it go to some other community?

The state has no feelings. Elected state officials who want to buy your vote are the responsible for this waste.
It's a poor argument that SF should waste the money before some other district wastes the money. You teach that ethic to your kids? Would you say..."drink all the Coke" or "get fat as fast as you can" before someone else gets all the Coke or gets fatter? Is greed okay, even if you know better? If the same energy was put into educating students instead of helping Carcinoma's kid have a good time....the community would be better.

So you support "taking the high ground" and allowing the money to go to the other community? Wouldn't you rather see it go here. The state isn't going to
change it's way of budgeting and suddenly give everyone a $10 refund. I say spend the money here and not there. You say refuse the money and let it go there, to me that seems urinating into the wind.

"urinating in the wind".....that would describe "elected officials" and most of the liberals that support their tax and spend mentality....."the state isn't going to change".....great mindset if you support apathy, but then again if you look at most states run by Dems that is probably the best they have to offer, that and deficits!

It all depends upon what is being funded. There is a tendency for almost any person or group to turn a blind eye to the reality of where the money comes from when it's something they want. People are fine with having gov't spending pay as long as their ox doesn't get gored. And THAT is the problem.
