Citizens to vote on Prop A tomorrow

Ben Cohen, breaking news editor

Voters in the Kirkwood School District will vote on Proposition A Nov. 3. Proposition A is a tax levy of $0.78 per $100 of assessed value. The proposition was approved unanimously July 20 by the Kirkwood Board of Education. Resident enrollment increased by 650 students since 2010, and KSD has not asked for an increase in operating taxes for the past 10 years.

“There are a lot of people working hard, trying to get people to come out and vote,” Dr. Michael Havener, principal, said. “A lot of those people are employees, and even more parents and community members. They need to really be thanked for the work they are doing because it’s a lot of time and they aren’t being paid for the work they’re doing. They’re doing it because they want to see Kirkwood stay great.”

Tax Fairly”, a group opposed to the tax levy, declined an interview with TKC after several emails were sent.
