Opening Schools

By A.M.(Al) Johnson

Seeing all the hub bub on the subject of opening schools in the normal process being a question, particularly with the teacher unions across the spectrum advocating no opening until (insert your knowing subject or demand given), a thought is offered.. 
100% of all Ketchikan Gateway Borough property owners property tax is allocated to the school budget.  Is it not too early to post that if the schools are not officially open on time with penalty were they not to be, why should any borough property owner submit their property tax monies???   All other expenses for the borough government are from other sources than property tax. 

Call it a "Home owner's" tax break.

A community discussion point for consideration.

You can thank me later,
