The Mattawan government school district is demanding an 88 million dollar tax hike. This is 3.88 mills (a mill is one thousandth of the taxable value (half) of your property). This is not necessary and not affordable. With a poor economy and many people out of work, schools should learn to live within their means, just as private citizens must.
