"When bread gets to be $10 a loaf, I wonder if the same people will try to buy out the bakery," sald Jim Kaiser. Although outnum- bered, several PUD sup- porters in the audience did speak up. Kent Bylund said he had recently moved to Dallas from Eugene, which is served by a public utility district. He "You don't have to be a college graduate to know that a 515-percent markup is a ripoff," he said. A representative of the Oregon State Grange also spoke in favor of the PUD, claiming that exist- ing PUDs charge cus- tomers considerably less for power than do private utilities. Both supporters and ill mln The tax base sought by School Distric 30J, the Willamina unified school district, is $1,421,000. Although the total proposed budget is 19% higher than it was last year, the tax base sought is actually $2,000 less than last year's levy. The school board decided to present to the voters as a tax base the same amount needed for the 1980-81 budget. Because of the fire loss, some education programs were dis- rupted, leaving a $140,000 carry- over. That allowed for some budget increases while reducing the amount needed from taxes. The most significant increases ool in the proposed budget result from adding two full-time teach- ing positions for the Willamina Grade School. A new full-time teacher was hired in Grand Ronde Grade School at Christmas time, so that position, too, is an added budget item. All other budget increases are minimal. The total proposed budget for 1980-81 is $2,537,574. In addition to the $1,421,000 sought from property taxes, the district will receive revenues from timber taxes and from state and federal revenue sharing. The amounts from those sources, however, are unknown , but whatever is received in timber taxes is lie deducted from the amount levied against property. This is the first time the voters of the school district have been presented a tax base. Approval of the tax base will allow the district to levy an annual property tax of up to 6% without going to the voters. That would save the district the cost of annual elections, which often have to be repeated once or twice. According to Superintendent Donn Mitchell, statistics have shown that districts with a tax base have had less budgetary increases than the districts that have had to go to the voters each year to approve their operating budgets.

Is the amount of taxes uIed to pay off bonded Indebtedness included in the tax base? Answer: No. These are separ- ate funds approved by the voters. How does the local school district tax rate compare with neighboring school districts? Answer: It is difficult to get an exact comparison, due to the bonded indebtedness varying from district to district. However, the following 1979-80 tax rates existed for the listed districts: Amity, 12.33; *Carlton, 12.30; Central, 11.66; Dallas, 11.00; Dayton, 11.02; McMinnvllle, 12.75; Salem, 12.03; Newbarg, 12.93; **Sheridan, 8.59; *Yam- hill, 13.30; Willamlmt, 9.81; Perrydale, 16.32. * i nd icatas elementary districts, include rate limitation. The Yamhill County Commissioners and City of Sheri- dan have opted to go the other route of setting a larger figure than is necessary for the 1980-81 budget. Thus, you can see, different views exist. Are there any immediate needs for additional facilities in the Sheridan Schools? Answer: No. The new Chapman facility will provide for much needed space in that building regarding physical education and music programs. It will also allow more community related activity space.
