East Valley School District Bond Measure (April 2011)
This measure was defeated
- YES 2,543 (39.27%)
- NO 3,932 (60.73%)
This measure sought to issue a bond in the amount of $33.75 million in order to help pay for renovations at schools as well as make upgrades to technology and infrastructure throughout the district as needed. If this measure had been approved, the school district was expecting to receive state funding matching the bond amount. An addition in the amount of $.86 per $1,000 of assessed property value would have also been added to local taxes as well.
