Broward County Property Appraisars going to the Business!

So I was reading the paper today and came across an article that Broward County Property Appraisers are going to business that owe in back taxes. The county is looking to collect around $8 million in back taxes.

FORT LAUDERDALE - Tax collectors hit the streets Wednesday in a sweep of hundreds of business -- demanding they pay delinquent bills or have their equipment and furnishings sold at auction.

Customers were exercising at a downtown Fort Lauderdale gym when collection agents posted a lien for $9,900 in back taxes on its doors in the morning. Workers at a Quizno's sandwich shop on nearby Las Olas Boulevard were preparing for the midday rush when the agents arrived there moments later to tape a lien for $3,400 to its front door.

Broward County hopes to collect up to $8 million in past-due personal property taxes in the three-day push. Auctioneers are on standby to begin selling the property of any businesses that don't pay up within 30 days.

So now my question is, If the businesses pay up, and now the county has that money, will they still be layiing off the 400 plus teachers they plan to let go?

I mean come on $8 million dollars is alot of money!!!

FORT LAUDERDALE - The Broward School Board voted unanimously Tuesday night to lay off almost 400 teachers, despite pleas from more than 150 parents, teachers and students -- mostly from West Broward High School -- to keep them in their jobs.

Board members said they had little choice but to lay off the teachers, citing three years of state budget cuts and declining student enrollment. And they were angry, urging the audience to call and write state leaders to protest.

This is the first time in more than two decades that the Broward School District has laid off teachers, though officials said they hoped all the teachers would be back at work with the district by Aug. 24, the first day of school.

Both of these articles are in todays paper. We have 2 different things going on. I hope that the county looks to see if they can hold on to these teachers. I really don't want to see my kids in bigger class rooms and not get the proper teachings they need. To many students in each class takes away from individual times with the teacher.

I am not trying to be selfish in anyway, but I am looking for the best option for my kids!

Am I wrong? I don't think so, but you chime in and tell me if you have a better idea. Not like the government will listen to us. But you never know!
