Text of measure
Shall the Governing Board of Washington Elementary School District No. 6 of Maricopa County, Arizona, adopt a budget which includes an amount that exceeds the capital outlay revenue limit specified by statute in the amount of the lesser of $7,800,000 dollars or ten percent of the District’s revenue control limit per fiscal year for fiscal year 2014-2015 and the six fiscal years thereafter? The amount of the proposed increase of the proposed budget over the alternate budget for fiscal year 2014-2015 is estimated to be $7,800,000.
Any budget increase authorized by this election shall be entirely funded by a levy of taxes upon the taxable property within this school district for the year in 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 increase in the school district's budget would require an estimated tax rate of $0.73 per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation used for secondary property tax purposes and is in addition to the school district's tax rate which will be levied to fund the school district's capital outlay revenue limit allowed by law.
