COVENTRY â€” Residents are red-faced and angry with the no-win financial situation the town is facing for the fiscal year 2015 budget.
With the public meeting and vote just a week away, residents feel stuck facing either higher taxes or severe cuts in schools.
â€śI just donâ€™t know what to do,â€ť said one resident. â€śI donâ€™t want to see anyone suffer, whether it be my family or the schools. It feels like a no-win situation to be honest. I donâ€™t know how much more in taxes I can take but I know there are certain programs that kids really need. Iâ€™m not sure we need another sports field but we do need specialists to help those students with special needs and most of the residents I know feel the same â€” people are very concerned.â€ť
