School supporters hit the pavement

If you live in Hartselle you can expect someone to knock on your door Saturday and ask you to go to the polls on March 11and vote for a 7.5 mill property tax to help fund the construction of a new high school. Residents not at home when the volunteer solicitors come by can expect to find a preprinted promotional flyer attached to a doorknob when they return.
The Hartselle City Council is committed to pass a half-cent sales tax as the second revenue source providing the property tax passes. Both sources are expected to generate about $1.5 million a year, or enough to pay off $30 million in bonded indebtedness in 30 years.
To facilitate the door-to-door canvass, the city has been divided into four geographical quadrants. F.E. Burleson, Crestline and Barkley Bridge elementary schools and Hartselle Junior High School each will have responsibility to cover a quadrant. Each volunteer group will begin canvassing its assigned area at 8:30 a.m.
A member of the school board will be present at each one of the schools from 8:30 to 11 a.m. to answer questions regarding the proposed new school and property tax.
As follow-ups, voters will receive a letter from the school system seeking support for the tax on Monday before the election and phone calls will be made by tax supporters the same day to remind voters to go vote.
