UPDATE: (ELECTION RESULTS from 11/7/17) SCHOOL BOND PASSED WITH 663 FOR and 331 AGAINST.
Now that the bond has passed, what's next?
 

The immediate first steps will be requesting proposals/qualifications from geo-technical engineers, civil engineers, and construction managers to begin the pre-work, research, and design schematics that must be done prior to any actual construction. This is the normal protocol for school construction projects. The first thing you might actually "see" will be the relocation of the bus barn and maintenance building that will begin in early Spring. Please keep in mind the timeline below is an estimate.

When will I see a change in my I&S tax rate? 

Your 2017 tax values have already been distributed to taxpayers and those do not include the new approved school bond tax levy (I&S rate). The first time any increase will be seen will be in 2018's I&S tax rate for the payment due in January of 2019. Because of the staging of the project, we may not have to draw all of the bonds at once. If this occurs, it is possible that a partial increase will occur in the January 2019 payment with the remainder of the tax rate increase seen in January of 2020.  These decisions will be determined based on market conditions and monetary requirements at certain phases of construction.
