Get ready for a tax increase residents and taxpayers of Coventry. How long did you really think the honeymoon phase would last?

All the school improvement issues passed. That is wonderful news and much needed repairs can be made. Congratulations to all the citizens of Coventry for a lob well done.

Pat - as far as he Coventry Bonds, they are necessary - if we didn't take care of most of our school issues we would have lost accredidation and then what would our properties be worth, someone could get hurt on the track or on the stands while watching our children - then there would be legal battle and the town would have to deal with the price of paying out on these claims which would also increase our taxes. Our children are important. I am a parent of two children in the school system at present, but even if I were not I would consider the safety of our children, families and any citizens of utmost importance. I could sit here and name a lot of things that don't need to be done that cost plenty, but I will not, we need to move forward. I am unemployed and have to cut back to make ends meet, but again safety is of concern. So either way taxes will end up going up.

The school committee did such a poor job over the past several years budgeting for maintenance, so now we're screwed and will have to bay a bigger bill. The only people to blame for this is the school committee and the administrators, not the taxpayers, but we are the ones who will get more blood squeezed out of our veins.
