            (2-2)  The Following Communication: (S.P. 546)

 

RESOLUTION OF THE CALAIS CITY COUNCIL & CALAIS SCHOOL COMMITTEE IN SUPPORT OF FULLY FUNDING
MAINE'S PUBLIC SCHOOLS

 

Whereas, public education is integral to the democratic viability and economic future of Maine by directly and indirectly contributing to the intellectual and physical development of the children and young adults of our great state; and

 

Whereas, recognizing the essential need of a strong public school system the voters of Maine in 2004 overwhelmingly approved a referendum requiring the State of Maine to fully fund 55% of the cost of public education; and

 

Whereas, since 2008, the state has short-changed its share of funding for public education by over $500 million in flagrant violation of the letter and spirit of the 2004 referendum; and

 

Whereas, as the state has abandoned its commitment to fund our public schools property owners throughout the state have often been asked to shoulder more of the responsibility for funding our schools, often through increases in local property taxes; and

 

Whereas, the Governor has proposed in his budget moving the funding for our schools backwards by reducing GPA to local school districts by $12.56 million from 2012-13 levels and shifting an additional $14 million in retirement costs from the state to the local school districts for each of the next two years; and

 

Whereas, if the Governor's proposed budget is adopted in its current form, our school district will be forced to take drastic actions to balance their budgets by laying off educators, reducing personnel, cutting programs and services, and asking local middle class families to pay even more in property taxes to make up for the shortfall from the state;

 

Now Therefore, be it resolved that:

 

The Calais City Council & Calais School Committee calls on the legislators of both parties to fully fund our public schools as expressed by the will of the citizens of Maine in the 2004 referendum by providing the required 55% of the cost of public education in Maine; and

 

The Calais City Council & Calais School Committee calls upon the legislators of both parties to reject the Governor's proposal to shift pension payments onto local cities and towns; and

 

Therefore be it finally resolved, that the Calais City Council & Calais School Committee calls upon the Maine Legislature to raise additional state revenue in an equitable fashion in order to avoid regressive tax shifts to municipalities.

 

Signed

 

S/Marianne Moore

Mayor

 

S/James Macdonald

School Committee Chair

TOWNS OF MAPLETON,

CASTLE HILL AND CHAPMAN

P.O. BOX 500, 103 PULCIFUR ROAD

MAPLETON, MAINE  04757

April 8, 2013

 

RESOLVE, to express objections from the Joint Board of Selectmen for Mapleton, Castle Hill and Chapman regarding the Governor's proposed biennial budget.

 

WHEREAS, the State Administration has submitted a proposed budget for the coming biennium that will dramatically shift the burden of funding state government to municipalities and property tax payers by eliminating or significantly altering several property tax relief programs; and

 

WHEREAS, the Governor's purpose for the proposed budget is to encourage local governments to save money by consolidating services and finding alternatives to funding municipal government; and

 

WHEREAS, the proposal to suspend municipal revenue sharing, redirect commercial vehicle excise tax and modify the homestead and business equipment tax reimbursement programs would result in an annual loss of approximately $173,000 in revenues and represents an additional $1.20 on the tax rate for the towns; and

 

WHEREAS, the homestead exemption property tax benefit loss will impact the individual property tax payer the equivalent of an additional $1.30 on the tax rate; and

 

WHEREAS, the Towns of Mapleton, Castle Hill and Chapman have saved money through consolidation of services, reducing the tax burden on property owners by nearly 50% compared to similar Maine towns, and have led the State in finding alternatives by consolidating their municipal government through their 1992 Interlocal Agreement, operating joint administrative, highway, fire and law enforcement services;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE MAPLETON, CASTLE HILL AND CHAPMAN JOINT BOARD OF SELECTMEN that the Towns hereby declare their opposition to the Governor's proposed biennial budget and its detrimental shift of state government costs onto municipalities and property tax payers in the interest of forcing local governments to save money by consolidating services and finding alternatives to funding municipal government; and

 

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that the Joint Board of Selectmen calls upon the State Legislature to implement fair and equitable budget solutions that do not burden, but rather reward property taxpayers whose municipal government found alternatives that save money through consolidation of services.

 

Read and Adopted by a Vote of the Mapleton, Castle Hill and Chapman Joint Board of Selectmen in meeting assembled: April 8, 2013

TOWN OF FALMOUTH

RESOLUTION IN OPPOSITION TO LD 300

 

Resolution No 90-2013

 

WHEREAS, the property taxpayers of Falmouth are obligated to fund education for their K-12 students under the laws of the State of Maine; and

 

WHEREAS, more than 70 percent of Falmouth property taxes are spent to support education in the Falmouth School District; and

 

WHEREAS, the largest line item expense after salaries in the school district's budget is for the cost of health care insurance for teachers, administrators and support staff; and

 

WHEREAS, competition most often produces lower prices for goods and services and improves understanding of the value of such goods and services; and

 

WHEREAS, the 125th Maine Legislature passed LD 1326 An Act To Allow School Administrative Units To Seek Less Expensive Health Insurance Alternatives and the bill was signed into law by the governor to enable the release of health insurance loss data to individual school districts for the purpose of understanding and soliciting competitive proposals for health insurance; and

 

WHEREAS, the new law, having been in effect for less than one year, breaks a decades-long virtual monopoly by the Maine Education Association Benefits Trust over local health insurance costs by concealing the loss data for individual school districts; and

 

WHEREAS, the United States Federal Court in Maine and the United States Federal Court of Appeals in Boston both have rejected arguments by the Maine Education Association Benefits Trust that attempted to block implementation of this insurance reform

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE TOWN COUNCIL OF THE TOWN OF FALMOUTH, that the Town Council hereby urges the 126th Legislature to reject LD 300, or any other legislation that restricts access to local loss data and designates the Town Manager to communicate the Town Council's opposition to this bill's sponsors, other legislators, the Joint Standing Committee on Insurance and Financial Services and other municipal officials.

 

Approved this 8th day of April 2013

 

Attest: S/Ellen Planer, Town Clerk
