LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – Ask, and ye shall receive.
The Post headline on Tuesday’s (Oct. 24, 2017) story about the Pottsgrove School District’s current cash surplus posed a rhetorical question: “How Will Pottsgrove Use Extra $1.17 Million?” It was answered, in part, Tuesday night by the district Board of School Directors. Its members decided, for the time being, to allocate only a portion of those funds and determine later what to do with the remainder.
Social media readers, never ones to shy from a challenge, also took it upon themselves to answer the question. There were plenty of opinions about the district’s ability to bring in substantially more revenue than it needed. There was significant resentment from taxpayers who believed they suffered as a result. There was obvious anger from a few who considered the existence of a surplus as adding insult to past tax increase injuries. The administration, in response, promised it “continues to focus on improving budget accuracy.”
There also were suggestions about how the money should be redistributed, or spent, or kept for the future. Here’s a selection of those:
