Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

Shall the Governing Board of Bisbee Unified School District No. 2 of Cochise County, Arizona, adopt a General Maintenance and Operation Budget which includes an amount that exceeds the revenue control limit specified by statute by ten percent for fiscal year 2013-2014 and for six subsequent years as described below? The 2013-2014 budget override authority represents a

continuation of the existing budget override authority which is scheduled to phase down by one-third for fiscal year 2013-2014 if the voters do not approve the continuation.

The amount of the proposed continuation of the budget increase of the proposed budget over the alternate budget for fiscal year 2013-2014 is estimated to be $141,656. In fiscal years 2013-2014 through 2017-2018 the amount of the proposed increase will be ten percent of the District’s revenue control limit in each of such years, as provided in Section 15-481(P) of the Arizona Revised Statutes. In fiscal years 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 the amount of the proposed increase will be six and two-thirds percent and three and one-third percent, respectively, of the District’s revenue control limit in each of such years, as provided in Section 15-481(P) of the Arizona Revised Statutes.

Any budget increase continuation authorized by this election shall be entirely funded by a levy of taxes upon the taxable property in this school district for the year for which adopted and for six subsequent years, shall not be realized from monies furnished by the state and shall not be subject to the limitation on taxes specified in Article IX, Section 18, Constitution of Arizona. Based on the current assessed valuation used for secondary property tax purposes, to fund the proposed continuation of the increase in the school district's budget would require an estimated continuation of a tax rate of $0.70 per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation used for secondary property tax purposes and is in addition to the school district's tax rate that will be levied to fund the school district's revenue control limit allowed by law.
