Confusion for Sherman taxpayers

The tax levy limit and property tax freeze are causing a good deal of confusion for taxpayers, Sherman Central School district superintendent Kaine Kelly told the board of education last Monday

Taxpayers are experiencing a good deal of difficulty understanding how the property tax cap will affect them, Kelly said.

"It is nice that, as long as we are in compliance with the tax levy limi, our taxpayers will receive a rebate check for the amount we increase their taxes,' Kelly said. "However, it is unfortunate that these two things exist. If schools were funded properly and if the tax levy limit did not exist, schools would not have to be increasing taxes this year."

Activities scheduled for the graduating Class of 2014 include a Baccalaureate Ceremony on Sunday, June 8 at 6:30 p.m. in the Auditorium, the Senior Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, June 17 at 6:30 p.m., also in the Auditorium, and the commencement ceremony will be held on Friday, June 27 at 6:30 p.m.

In other business, school board members entered into a Memorandum of Agreement for a retirement incentive for members of the Sherman Teachers Association. The board expects one member to take the incentive at the present time.
