In addition to the tax increase to pay for non-residents, Brookline MA also will be asking voters to approve $49,850,000 to renovate the Devotion School. Yes you read that correctly. Almost fifty million dollars! The extras they want include a new kitchen and café, a new gym with smaller attached fitness room, and 2 pre-kindergarten classrooms. They even plan on putting in an underground garage.
This spending spree will raise the taxes for each homeowner by $208 for 25 years beyond the thousands they are currently paying. If these people in Brookline have their way, each homeowner will have to pay an extra $658 ($450 covering non-resident students in the school system and $208 for the renovated school) in taxes beyond the thousands they are currently paying each year.
Tomorrow we will look at how much money they have already grabbed and wasted on outlandish administrator salaries.
