Discussion Agenda

33. Request the Board approve the initiative to seek a .5% school capital outlay surtax
Attachment: Revenue Options for Capital Outlay.pdf
Attachment: Van Zant Handout on Sales Tax.pdf

Sean Cronin addressed the Board as a concerned citizen regarding the sales tax initiative. 

Superintendent Owens explained the critical need for more money to finance school construction.  To avoid massive redistricting to balance student enrollments required by state mandated school concurrency and to keep from going deeper in debt, the sales tax seems to be a viable solution.  Mr.Owens asked for support from the Board and for their ideas on the direction to take in formulating a plan.  General consensus of the Board was to support the sales tax and proceed with the development of the required Resolution, plan for use of the sales tax revenues and all other associated documentation needed for pursuit of the said tax.

Motion to approve the initiative to seek a .5% school capital outlay surtax.- PASS
