The School District of Washington will place a $15 million zero tax rate increase bond issue on the Aug. 2, 2016, ballot.
The $15 million zero tax rate increase bond issue is pretty simple in nature. The majority of the issue is simply about moving and refinancing existing lease debt into bond debt. This action requires voter approval due to the mechanics of school finance. This conversion and refinancing will allow the debt to be paid from the debt service fund without a change in the debt service levy.
The revenue in that fund will service the debt nicely. This way, revenue that was servicing the $13.66 million ($1.5 million in payments) can be shifted to the general fund for operations. This will provide us with the flexibility we need to deal with our losses in assessed valuation and our declining state aid.
So, of the $15 million proposed in the bond issue, 13.66 of it is not new debt at all, but simply moving of payments from one fund to another.
Then, additionally, the balance of the bond issue (approximately $1.4 million) would be to finance roof replacements, safety and security upgrades and some minor classroom renovation. Simple, basic and responsible.
