Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the Board of Education of the Climax Springs R-IV School District, Missouri, be authorized to increase the operating tax levy ceiling by $0.94 to $3.69 per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation through tax year 2030 and decrease the operating tax levy ceiling of the District by $0.94 to $2.75 per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation for the Tax Year 2031 and thereafter and to eliminate fully the Proposition C Sales Tax Rollback in its operating levy for school purposes as provided in Section 164.013 R.S.Mo. in order to provide funds for the acquisition, site development, construction, equipping and furnishing of a new school building?

(If this proposition is approved, the adjusted operating levy of the District is estimated to increase by $0.94 per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation in Tax Year 2011 and thereafter through Tax Year 2030 from the current operating levy of $ 2.75 to $3.69 per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation, and is estimated to be reduced by $0.94 to $2.75 per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation in the Tax Year 2031 and thereafter.)[3]
