RYE - The Rye School District is considering a tax on utility bills as a way to cover rising costs.

District officials say they're caught between rising costs and a state-imposed cap on property taxes.

Some residents say they don't mind the extra cost, if it means supporting the district. Others say they're already paying too much and don't think it's the right solution.

A school district spokesperson says they won't say anything about the proposal until after a meeting next week on the 2014-15 school budget.
