Host Dr. Paul Reeves, Mayor Rick Sollars and Karl Ziomek are joined on the podcast by new Taylor School District Supt. Ben Williams as they discuss the proposed Taylor School District School Improvement Bond.
The bond, which will appear on the November 8 General Election ballot, calls for a 0.96-mill levy for five years. The 0.96-mill levy would essentially be financially neutral to taxpayers, who were paying the exact same rate for a 20-year bond that previously targeted improvements across the City's southwest end. That 20-year bond fell off the tax rolls last year.
Many cities in the Metro Detroit area have recently faced class-action lawsuits, all filed by the same law firm and focusing on the water and sewer funds in those communities.
Host Dr. Paul Reeves and Karl Ziomek discuss the issue with Mayor Rick Sollars in this week's podcast.
