Does MVRCS pay any mitigation fees to the city to offset the financial impact on the city for things like its use of city parks, plowing prioritization when they insist on opening when the rest of the city's schools are closed, and increased traffic? The school has managed to amass a tidy endowment with taxpayer funds and has now built its own facilities to use as revenue sources. Meanwhile, our regular public schools are in a dire funding crisis due largely to the city's financial mismanagement and unnecessary and highly questionable tax giveaways to real estate developers whose projects have skewed the state funding formula severely against us. Now we have a serious funding problem on our hands. Everyone needs to pull their weight and pay their fair share for the services they use. It is my understanding that other cities collect such fees. What do we collect? What more can we collect? And why don't we?
