Aromas-San Juan Unified School District bond proposition, Measure Z (November 2010)
Measure Z authorized the Aromas-San Juan Unified School District to borrow $16.1 million.
Funds from the bond were designated for improvements at Aromas School, San Juan School, Anzar High School and the Tom Connolly Mi Escuelita Preschool, as well as to pay off an outstanding loan of $1.9 million.
The school district's estimate of the highest tax rate that will be levied to fund the bond is $52.73 per $100,000 of assessed property value.
A 55 percent supermajority vote was required for approval.
Two years earlier, voters in the district rejected Measure V, an $18.8 million bond proposition.
