Call for fiscal responsibility
Hardin County residents, please take note. The Hardin County School Board announced on Sept. 4, 2013, that it was raising property taxes. Eighteen calendar days later, Sept. 22, 2013, it announced the approval of its budget.
What is wrong with this picture? Shouldn’t this process have been completed in reverse order? Finalize the budget, then determine if there is a reason or need to raise taxes.
