On March 8, at 6:30 pm, the HB COOP School Board and Budget Committee is proposing spending for next year that will raise our COOP taxes by 13.7% (Hollis) and 15.5% (Brookline). More than $28.5M in spending next year is proposed, with 3.1% fewer students. The plan is to spend $25,668/student. This is not sustainable.
If we do not stop this spending plan, our property taxes for just the COOP will increase by +$0.98/1K (Hollis) and +$1.82/1K (Brookline). For the COOP portion of the 2023 property tax bill:
Please see the attached Voter's Guide (and Summary Voter's Guide) for details on the spending and voting recommendations.
Please attend the COOP School District Meeting at HB High School at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, March 8, 2023 to vote to help stop the proposed 13.7%/15.5% tax increases. Please alert fellow Hollis and Brookline taxpayers and forward this message. Please let me know if you have any questions and hope to see you at the meeting on March 8 to slow this unsustainable spending.
