2010-Jan-26
Election to Renew 9.9 mil Education Tax
____________

  • On Tuesday, January 26, a city-wide election will be held for the single purpose of renewing a 9.9 mill ad valorem tax which has been financing Mountain Brook Schools for 47 years.

  • The approval of this tax renewal WILL NOT result in any new taxes for Mountain Brook homeowners, but will simply continue an existing source of basic school funding.

  • Revenues from the tax go directly into the school system’s general fund to cover basic costs such as teacher salaries and operating expenses.

  • The 9.9 mill tax is equivalent to the salaries and benefits of 83 teachers. To put that in perspective, Mountain Brook Junior High employs 89 teachers.

  • Therefore, this revenue is critical in maintaining current teacher-student ratios which are, in turn, essential to maintaining the quality of the education that this community has always expected and supported.

  • This election will be held at your normal polling place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 26.

  • Absentee ballots are available by mail or by calling 325-5313.

  • Please vote YES on January 26th so we can continue to provide the excellence in education that helps define our community!
