  • NO 651 (47.3%)

This measure sought to issue a bond in the amount of $7.25 million in order to pay for remodel and refurbishing current school buildings, upgrading technology and pay for improvements to district athletic fields.[1] This bond will add a levy at a rate of 2.35 mills to the local property tax rate. This measure had also been asked in May, but failed by just fourteen votes. This bond request had been reduced from the previous May amount in the hopes that residents would approve the lower rate. Some residents though had stated that even though the rate was reduced, it was still the wrong time to be asking for additional bond money. Though school officials noted that they did ask for resident's input about the bond proposal and sought to make this new bond more fitting to what residents had said they wanted.[2]
