    We were lead to believe this school tax was temporary. It was only to build and restore the old school. Now they want to repurpose this tax for something else. We the people of Trussville were mislead.

    I think these are two different taxes. The one coming up is a renewal of an older 30 yr tax for Jefferson County schools which also includes Trussville. The most recent one was an additional tax just for Trussville Schools. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    This is not the Trussville school tax. This is a Jefferson County tax that has been around for 25+ years. It is up for renewal. Some school systems would lose $1700 per student per year if this tax is not renewed. This is completely separate from Trussville City Schools taxes.

    There are actually three tax renewals to be voted on. Two of the are countywide tax issues that are 30 years old. The third tax renewal is the property tax for Trussville that was originally passed when the school system started. This is not the tax Trussville passed for the two new elementary schools.

    I know that they always say it would have terrible consequences if they are voted down but I really wonder what would happen.
