Randolph residents split on proposed $20 million school referendum
(10/06/04) RANDOLPH Residents in Randolph Township have differing opinions on a referendum aimed at helping area public schools.
If passed, the referendum will hike property taxes and put more than $20 million towards the public school system. A Randolph school official says a good education for young people is vital for Americas future.
Those who support the plan say they dont mind the proposed tax hike if their extra money will be going towards a good cause. However, others say they simply cant afford a tax increase. Opponents also say the county has other problems that should take precedence over the school makeover.
The vote for the referendum will take place December 14. Homeowners can expect to pay an additional $150 per year if the plan is given the green light by voters.
