The sound of your taxes going up

It may not be the sound of summer, but it is the sound of spring.


It's the sound of local school boards raising your taxes.

In Rose Tree Media this year, they decided to take a new approach. They borrowed a page from something Upper Darby tried, bringing in the Penn Center for Civic Engagement and holding a series of public hearings on the budget process.

It was a different route, but it wound up in the same place.

Taxes are going up. Again.

At this point, hearings are not going to help local school districts.

They need help from Harrisburg.

And soon.
