Promises, promises. They’re only as good as the one making them. Unfortunately, the Batavia School Board cannot be trusted. The tax increase is decided, as the Batavia Patch reports 2/23/12:

Batavia School Board Increases Tax Rate, Goes Back on its Word

“The Board promised to keep the district’s overall tax rate at $4.69 as part of the 2007 Building Referendum. Board members on Tuesday passed a resolution to increase the rate to an amount not exceeding $5 per $100 of equalized assessed valuation for the 2010 levy.This means the school tax rate for the owner of a $100,000 home will not exceed $5,000 [emphasis added].”
