Ok, if the school really wants to get a levy passed in this town, make it a 4 mil levy. Then, the following year put a 1/2% income tax levy on the ballot for the balance. 8.25 mils is too much at one time to get passed.

I think if Tony Scott steps down it will pass!! or it will be closer,this man takes retirement then goes back to work at full salary?? Not A big hit in my book!! Another thing is that bellaire has alot of people with fixed income & welfare?? where is this money going to come from?? SEND TONY SCOTT PACKING!!

I agree with FIGHT and said the same thing. They thought they had this in the bag so they tried to jam a huge almost unheard of 8.25 mill levy down the tax payers throat. I truly believe that a 3 mill levy may have passed. and @ Belres as far as Tony Scott goes I hear you.There is nothing illegal about what he is doing. If he really cared though he would have cam back for 50% or 60% salary. Another person out there with a family needs a job. He is showing his greed by remaining there at full salary. Plus taking a job that he doesn't need while some one is looking for a job.

WONDER WHO HIRED TONY BACK, THE BOARD MEMBERS??? I THINK HALF THE PEOPLE IN THIS VILLAGE DON'T EVEN KNOW WHO THE BOARD MEMBERS ARE. ARE THEY THE ONES WHO'S IN CHARGE? MAYBE THEY ARE TO BLAME A LITTLE ALSO. MAYBE THEY SHOULD COME OUT AND SPEAK UP AND BE HEARD.

Fight: Who's gonna vote for a half percent sales tax? Already an income tax, right? Is that still in effect? Part of the reason many employed left to live outside city (at the time) limits. Can sales tax be used to pay for school budget needs? Many questions to your line of thinking.

When the first levy was placed on the ballot for “the kids” there was a teacher with a sign in their car that read “Support The Teachers”. Seriously…? Spoke volumes to me!
