Monroe BoE Passes a School Budget that actually reduces Property Tax Bills by $114!

Wow, there's something you don't see often but saw this piece here about Monroe's School Board passing a budget that lowers the property tax bills. Their school tax portion of their property tax bill will be less than what it was last year! A first in 17 years.

You know, not like we do here in Downtown Edison even when School Budgets are Defeated by the Voters - and the Council turns a blind eye to the residents' wishes and just reduces the amount of the increase. Hence, always an increase in school taxes.

As long as I can remember and checked, we've never had a reduction in our school taxes in any school budget here in Downtown Edison - the Board of Mythomania's School Budgets have always resulted in tax increases - even after Council cuts to Voter Defeated School Budgets.

Just since I've been looking, it's been 22 Years of Continuous School Tax Increases here in Downtown Edison:
But hey, at least we're comforted in the knowledge that the powers that be here in Downtown Edison are consistent - they've consistently taken advantage of the residents and taxpayers.
