Ridgefield voters rejected the last school bond that was presented in February. Now, here we are again, two months later, with essentially the same school bond being presented once again. Is our school board tone deaf? “Inflation is costing the average U.S. household an additional $296 per month,” a Moody’s Analytics analysis found. The figure is based on the latest reading on consumer prices, which rose 7.9% in February compared with a year ago. Homeowners are being financially stressed by increasing taxes and inflation. Renters are not immune to property tax increases either. Not only are rents soaring because of inflation, any property tax increases driven by school bonds will quickly be passed on to renters. It’s time to find a new paradigm to fund Ridgefield’s wild growth other than just issuing special elections every two months.
