Mr. Putnam:Your frustration with the amount paid in school taxes is understandable, but I believe misguided. Most of the money collected by Collier County is sent to the State of Florida and redistributed throughout the state. I admit I do not know the exact numbers, but a lot of what we pay does not stay here in Collier. We are paying for school children in the less affluent areas of Florida. The minimum mileage rate is set by the state in order for them to redistribute our wealth.
