This measure sought to create a bond in the amount of $8.8 million in order to help pay for expansion and overcrowding issues in the schools by renovating school facilities as needed.[2] If this bond had been approved, it would have added a additional tax of $1.96 per $1,000 of assessed property value but it would have replaced the previous bond property tax so overall rates would have been decreased for residents. School officials noted that with low interest rates that while no time was good to ask for more money this would have been the best time to get the job done soon.[3]
