Anyone else out there experience a 12% increase in school tax due to the LIBRARY?? I love and use the library; willing to pay my fair share, but that past 2 years the library concentrates on giving "disadvantaged kids" FREE lunches...this should not be a function of a library. Moreover, a couple of times I could not even ENTER the library becaause there were so many "hoodied" teens on the steps (making comments) that I did not even feel welcome.
Give me a FREE LUNCH sometime and...get rid of the trash on the steps who taunt regular users, then I won't feel so bad about giving an extra 12% in property taxes
In regard to a free lunch program, gets some information on who qualify because every child in the city of Geneva school district can exercise the use of the program unless you pocess data showing that ALL students are willing to pay regardless. Be careful in the usage of the word "TRASH" take a good look at any landfill, trash comes in an assorted array of shape, size and color and any articulation to support the 12 % increase based on a change of venue if "disadvantaged" kids are taken off the roll reveals ignorance along with a certain degree of racism and bigotry. FYI, .002 percent of the school district staff are minority while the student body is 58%, how many minority police officers does Geneva pocess while the demographic shows a minority population of 60%? where is your astonishment or outcry in those disparities? Show your displeasure but Geneva do possess a certain degree of residents who like to voice their displeasures in the wrong place. I speak from experience being that I grew up in the Finger Lakes among good and bad people and guess what? some good came out of the old "Chartres home" and some bad people resided in the outskirts owning upscaled dwellings.
