Despite the legitimate county-wide misgivings of the Daily Record, the news that our local WTBOE will remain stable with its current members is net positive for WT taxpayers as all but one of these folks produced last year's school budget that contained an overall spending DECREASE and a tax increase of less than 1%! In these tough economic times, it's hard to realistically ask for more than this. While this year will be just as challenging, I have every confidence this group will produce another budget worthy of our support.
With the Township Committee, it's a totally different story as a majority of the committee now consists of the WTBOE's former dead weight. Based on last year's sky rocking 60% growth in the municipal tax increase, I don't expect things to be any better this year as it is clear these committeeman have no clue on how to deal with the rapid decline in non-tax revenue, which has resulted from their own incompetence.
