Has anyone ever run across a line item comparison of how JC spends vs other NJ districts? I have no trouble believing it's wasteful, but I have no idea in what way.

Also, Stateaidguy says we're overaided, but I don't recall hearing what our appropriate aid should be. It's surely not Zero.

I will. I strongly believe in paying my fair share of taxes if it helps strengthen the community.

But does anyone have any idea of how to voice my opinion to anyone who can make a difference? Who can I contact? I can't believe that they would be so unwilling to put it to a city vote to raise taxes by more than the 2% to make up the shortfall. Why not at least give us a chance to vote whether we'd be willing to pay for our teachers to stay employed or not?

Does anyone know of any kind of action residents can take? I'm particularly concerned with the idea that 209 teachers "may" be laid off.

And the better part of half a billion dollars comes from other NJ taxpayers, year after year.

Initial $660M Jersey City school's budget calls for tax hike, layoffs

The nine-member school board gave preliminary approval to the school district's $660 million school budget for the 2018-19 school year.

The spending plan gets sent now to the county superintendent for approval. It is expected to be adopted in May.

Here's what residents need to know about how the budget would affect them and the 29,000-student school district.

$660,214,829: the total amount the school district intends to spend in 2018-19. That's 5 percent less than the district intends to spend this school year.

My suggestion - send a bill to tax abated properties.
