This past week, a second round of delays for school construction projects were considered by the Montgomery County Council due to lower revenue projections. Damascus High School, Magruder High School and Highland View Elementary School received the bad news in this round. Damascus High was delayed in 2020 and the other two projects were included in last year’s cuts which included 8 project delays. The last few years have included many school construction project delays or even cancellations due to multiple pressures.
Don’t delay Montgomery County school construction any longer, it’s time for a progressive recordation tax increase
