Poway Schools Rely On Mello-Roos Tax Machine For Lunches, Signs And Old School Repairs

It is getting out of hand. We should put in a ballot to strict the use of the Mello-Roos taxes for it was intended for use. We have paid for 11 years this Mello-Roos tax, we did not benefit on the use of school system because by the time the schools are created my child has already gone to college.
We do not mind contributing but for the district to misuse these funds is illegal.
I think what needs to be done is put a ballot to strictly enforce the CFD funds for what it is intended and any surplus needs to be put back as a reduction in Mello-Roos for the next tax fiscal year. These funds can not be collected forever from the homeowners subject to such.

Poway School Officials Front Costs With Mello-Roos Taxes; Vow To Pay It Back

I commend inewsource for a comprehensive article that every homeowner in the San Diego County should read in particular for those like us subject to Mello-Roos tax. I fully agree with board member Beatty to question on how the CFD's funds are being used. Poway School Disctrict board should be held accountable for not asking the public for authorization of such. Once a precedent issue come to light, then it is always possible for the board to use the same funds for non-related CFD without authorization from the public. They just got caught on this.
Such surplus of CFD funds should be used to either reduction in Mello-Roos for the following tax fiscal year for all homeowners subject to that specific CFD area OR earmark such surplus that is tangible for use to that specific CFD area.
