Poland schools expected to be in fiscal caution



Published: Mon, October 24, 2011 @ 8:49 p.m.

POLAND — It’s déjà vu for Poland schools.

After two additional levies were defeated back-to-back last November and May, the district’s treasurer expects the state to declare the district in fiscal caution this year after he submits the five-year forecast.

“This is one of the worst forecasts I’ve ever worked on,” said treasurer Donald Stanovcak at tonight’s board of education meeting.

Well they have waisted over $1,000,000 the last 4 years bussing about 50 high school kids, Zorn is a double dipper, and if your not one of the good ole boys in Poland... dont even knock on the door. Treasurer seems like a very knowledgeable and good person, they problem in Poland is the stuperintendent and the Board Memebers who jump when he says jump!!

Hey Anthony. What do the Township employees pay for Health Care? We need to get rid of those Trustees as well. Unless you are just hung up on the schools and don't care what your tax dollars do on the Government side? Must be related to one of them or graduated in 1979? When the schools go so will you!

Not related to any of them, I find the entire township building useless including the police. If there were ever a serious crime in Poland they would never solve it because they dont have a clue. Would like to throw these poland police on the city streets in youngstown.. they would hide, let them patrol the south side!! All they do is pass out speeding tickets to kids and people of color. The township is just like the schools, good ole boy system. I will not vote nor my family for one incumbent, township or schools. The reason I mention the schools is because it has been like this for 25 years no one says anything. Also, they can forget about a levy passing. People get elected to the school board and drink the zorn kool aid, nothing changes so keep voting them out.

Poland Levy will not be needed if SB5 passes with your YES vote on Issue 2. The combination of eliminating automatic seniority step increases along with paying more for healthcare and pensions by the employees makes any new levy un-needed. Vote YES on Issue 2 Poland and save yourself from a large un-needed tax increase.

unionforever is 100% correct. The fiscal crisis in Poland is what SB5 addresses. Taxpayers are sick of levies & higher property taxes; watching public employees retire in middle age & double dip right back into the system; paying benefits & wages to public employees that are better than their own. Vote YES on Issue 2.

anthonyjames,

If you hate the way Poland is run so much, why don't you move or run for office yourself?

They should rent out the Taj Majal football stadium for some added revenue!

Thank you, legend33! Where were their heads when they built the new stadium? (We already know the answer to that.) The mortgage payments for that facility have put them in the hole for many years.

I love the banner they hung on the fence about no tax dollars spent on the TRACK. It's very misleading, but unless you're watching closely, you might think the stadium was built on donations as well.

NO to levies. YES to SB5. And, our property value just went down over $20,000. So much for good schools (sorry, "Excellent with Distinction") keeping property values up . . .
