You call the Ward County office and you get your figure for your property taxes, and we have and we'll have to pay almost $2,000 a year more if the bond gets approved...now how does that work?????No property tax relief here....sorry....VOTE NO!

Legend-- snow removal before education? Please tell me that was a joke. Also, where are you getting your numbers? $700 a year/homeowner? What do you mean when you say "they ignored and scoffed at our last vote? As for oil impact funds, it's not happening right now. State funds are not available, if at all, until next session. Ask your local representatives about that. We don't have time to wait. Besides, all of the other growing districts and communities in ND are in desperate need of funds. We need to quit waiting for someone else to come along and fix our problem and vote yes.

nodakboy: agree civilized people advance. virtually impossible when wages do not keep up with inflation which is the root cause of our debt and deficit problems. too many sports, too much empire building in the schools and at the college level--it becomes beserk.

I think the bottomline Minot is being reactive instead of proactive and needs to take a page of out other progressive, growing communities that are experiencing oil growth...oh yeah the Minot Daily did publish it about Texas I believe. I think it's time to let the people know, no new taxes until you fix the problems that we do have of always being continuously being reactive...Besides again some people will be paying more than $1,000 in property taxes before the school bond is voted upon.....

RW: Why no cost figure Bob? $700 per year plus maintenance, per homeowner for many years. a double no vote is in order for 2 reasons. 1--they ignored and scoffed at our last school vote. 2. many cannot afford it and should not have to pay it--the state has oil impact money to pay this cost. vote no.

Starlett, I noticed you have evolved to using computers and the internet. Civilized societies keep advancing. Parents forever have always wanted their children to have it better off than they have had it.
