An update regarding the new Early Childhood Development Center was provided at the March 13 school board meeting.
A resolution was also passed authorizing the execution, terms, issuance, sale and payment of Limited Tax Capital Outlay Certificates Series 2023.
The repayment of these Limited Tax Capital Outlay Certificates Series 2023 would be repaid using current dollars from the Capital Outlay Budget.
The issuance of the Limited Tax Capital Outlay Certificates Series 2023 to be used for the new Early Childhood Development Center would not increase property taxes.
