This measure sought to increase the current income tax rate by 1 percent for a period of five years in order to help pay for current expenses of the school district.[2] District officials were trying to inform voters that this was not a new tax but just a renewal of the current income tax. While some residents noted that the school has a surplus of funds and is not sure why the tax should be continued, school officials noted that although there is surplus money now the district could face shortfalls from state funds so current taxes should remain in place to ensure the school is not adversely affected.[3]
