[UPDATE: The property tax paid by residents in the Shelby County portion of Hoover was not included in the original comparisons. The documents have been corrected to reflect those amounts.]
OK, then. Check out the tables below. Or download them.
Size, population, property tax rates, demographics, number of schools, size of budgets, percent of locally-funded personnel, even athletic spending and state championships.
One more thing: Vestavia, Mountain Brook and Homewood never offered bus transportation to and from school for the children of their community. Children living in Hoover have had school buses since we were a part of Jefferson County.
