Taxpayers of Newton & Kingston:

STax Impact of Sanborn Regional School Warrant Articles 3, 4 & 5.

There is information below that the School Board did not want you to know when voting for the school warrants on March 12, 2013. Why else would they vote 4-2 against posting the below numbers with each warrant?

Article #3: Operating Budget: $31,683,936

Newton: $0.59 Per Thousand: $250,000 Assessment = You pay $147.50

$350.000 Assessment = you pay $206.50

Kingston: $0.49 Per Thousand: $250,000 Assessment = You pay $122.50

$350,000 Assessment = You pay $171.50

Article #4: Professional Staff Agreement :$519,167 – First Year of three Year Contract

Newton:: $0.51 Per Thousand: $250,000 Assessment = you pay $127.50

$350.000 Assessment = you pay $175.50

Kingston: $0.39 Per Thousand:$250,000 Assessment = You pay $97.50

$350,000 Assessment = You pay $136.50

Article #5: Support Staff Agreement; $99,495 – First Year of two Year Contract

Newton: $0.10 Per Thousand: $250,000 Assessment = You pay $25.00

$350.000 Assessment = you pay $35.00

Kingston: $0.07 Per Thousand:$250,000 Assessment = You pay $17.50

$350,000 Assessment = You pay $29.50

This totals up to be $1.20 Per Thousand for Newton and $0.95 Per Thousand for Kingston.

As a side note on Heath Care: Taxpayers currently pay 95% of the cost of teachers Health Care. If article #3 passes, tax payers will pay 90% of health care cost. This is a nice perk; we in the private sector pay an average of 35-45%. We need to look at this during negations.
