The vote to increase our property tax by 20 percent for schools is another overtaxing of the citizens of Oneonta. What about the sales tax increase and the tax from alcohol sales? Where has that money gone?
Seems like every time an improvement is needed, the high rollers in town want to raise taxes. What about the retired people who are on fixed incomes and just barely getting by. The city doesn’t seem to care.
If you can’t fund a school system just give it back to the county. They seem to be doing a good job with the remaining schools in this county.
