Cost

The measure would authorize $24 million in bonds with less than 6 cents per $100 in assessed valuation, raising $1.5 million per year through 2049.

Accountability

To make sure the money is spent to address specific facilities, the district said the Board of Trustees has evaluated the facility needs and identified which projects will be financed.
