Money for schools – when and how much?
There seems to be widespread agreement that the city has major and expensive work to do on a number of elementary schools in the coming years.
There seems to be widespread agreement that we won’t be able to finance the necessary work without an override or debt exclusion – I’m still not 100% clear of the difference.
There seems to be widespread agreement that an override or exclusion is going to be tough politically.
So now for a little pure speculation. When will an override/exclusion be formally proposed? For how much? What are the chances of passing? Obviously without a detailed proposal on the table, that last question is unanswerable but that’s never stopped us before.
