Asifa for busing in Lakewood

A large asifa will take place this week in Lakewood to discuss the busing crisis. No not Lakewood busing but the transportation of children to chinuch Atzmoi schools in Eretz Yisrael. As chazal say

  1. Perhaps Lakewood township can pay for it. The committee paid for all the courtesy buying costs of the public school kids 1.6 million dollars against the will of the taxpayers. They might as well dish out money for this too.

  3. Detail on the new tax rates:
    http://www.asinj.com/revaluation.asp?p=current&id=331

    Search here - lists 15,000 of the 25,000 properties in LKWD and how much they were assessed athttps://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1NF8EaK4WqH8kwvcyC-neEWznHV3piRtvO1syOL2YLvM/edit?usp=sharing

    They provided a worksheet where you can calculate new tax, https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vKySn8_Fba30F-fWrCBhvAsDKZ_FfxtsJObJTKxMeaQ/edit?usp=sharing

    Basically, the old rate was 2.93. Since LKWD properties overall went up by 50%, if your value went up by more than 50% you have and increase and less than 50% you have a decrease. Approx new rate will be 1.957 subject to change based on 2017 budget. In the excel – enter old and new values into the first 2 yellow cells and the rest calculates automatically

  5. Because Zionim don't want kids going to Frum schools. Why is that so hard to understand ?

    1. And you know this because you read it in a בפירוש TVOL article, or your Satmer neighbor told you so?
