Zimmerman Says Enough is Enough

Zimmerman Says Enough is Enough

The Fairbury School Board reviewed and then approved administrator salaries Monday evening with one board member casting the lone nay vote across the board.

Richard Zimmerman said nay to an average of 2.9 percent salary increase for Fairbury School Administrators.

Enough is enough, Zimmerman said. Farmers cant continue to pay the majority of the bill for schools with the way the markets are going.

Zimmerman said that he has done some research and right now 65 percent of the revenue that supports the schools is coming from taxes from agricultural land. The taxes on ag land in Jefferson County has increased an average of 18 percent. The farmers income has not shown the same increase. Over the past two years there has been a 37 percent drop in the price of corn, that is a pretty significant chunk of money for the local farmers to have to deal with.
