Bond Issue


Money can be raised
WITHOUT

raising the
tax
levy.


Project improvements will reduce Districts
operating cost for energy
and
repair cost.


Projected savings over 20 years for this
phase:


Energy savings over $280,000


Operational savings over $1,000,000


Good management of finances by the Board
of Education has made this possible.

April Election Impact

Scenario 1


Bond Issue Passes:

This would allow for
extensive renovation of the Holcomb
School District Campus. Renovations to include
the
upgrade of
auditorium, structural and brickwork repair, replacement
of
windows, doors,
lighting, HVAC systems, and roof/drainage
repairs. The results of the project will lower the operations and
maintenance cost for the District and provide a high quality
learning environment for the students.

Funds would also continue to be available to maintain these
improvements and meet the educational needs of the district.

24

April Election Impact

Scenario
2


Bond Issue Fails:

Excessive
energy bills and maintenance costs would continue to escalate
on equipment that is well past its life expectancy.
Buildings will
continue to deteriorate and structural issues will not be rectified. Poor
indoor air quality in the classroom would impact the
educational needs
of the
students.
Eventually a tax increase would be required to do major
repairs and construction.
