I came across this recently and was struck particularly by a paragraph about how Euclid built new schools, pools, sewage plants, and improved public transportation. All while having the lowest taxes of any area suburb.
This is timely as the Euclid city schools are pushing hard for a bond (Issue 111) to pass that will ask residents to pay more in property taxes, to the tune of over $96 million dollars.
How is it that Euclid used to be on the extreme low end of the tax collection, yet have a school system so successful that people bought houses so their children could be enrolled in Euclid schools?
Perhaps continually raising the taxes didn't help, and chased industry outwards in all directions. If so, and I think that's a valid argument, will adding on more taxes help or hurt the city? You decide.
