Ho Ho Kus NJ, lead by a group called the ,“Committee of Concerned Taxpayers of HHK” , Ho Ho Kus residents rejected the $450,000 spending proposal by the Ho Ho Kus School Board on Tuesday by voting NO , to the proposal.
According to the group , “The BOE is asking for $450,000 in addition to the already booked permanent increase of $481,000 for 2019 ($108,000 State aid and $373,000 cap increase). Our taxes on the average home will increase by $514 this year alone (based on a house valued at $740,000), but if the SSP is approved. ”
The group said on their website , ” We want the best for all Ho-Ho-Kus children. Good education and parenting, however, are not achieved by throwing more money at a problem because we are made to believe somebody else throws more at their children’s education. “Keeping up with the Jones’s” is not practical for Ho-Ho-Kus.”
