USD 305 Superintendent Bill Hall is inviting the public to a community meeting tonight at the District Office at 1511 Gypsum.

Hall, stopped into the KSAL Morning News Wednesday with a look at some of the issues and numbers associated with the upcoming bond issue this spring. A meeting open to the public will begin at 6:30pm Wednesday night at the District Office at 1511 Gypsum.

Back in December of 2013 the 305 Board of Education approved a resolution to place a $110.7 million bond issue on the April 8, 2014 mail-in ballot.

Hall tells KSAL News, “A lot of folks say just tell me how much is it going to increase my taxes,” he said. “For the owner of a home valued at $100,000 it will increase their taxes at $4.50 a month.”

“From a financial standpoint it seems very doable,” he added.

The mail-in election would address district needs including safety and security, all-day kindergarten, career and technical education and improvements at both high schools, plus storm shelters at all the schools.

Prior to the election, a ballot will be sent to all registered voters who live within the school district boundaries. March 7th is the deadline to register and receive a ballot by mail.

Total Potential Bond Cost Overview:
· Total elementary project costs: $25,841,160
· Total middle school project costs: $ 8,148,000
· Total high school project costs: $75,672,115
· Total Other Attendance Centers Project Costs: $ 1,041,000
Total Potential Bond Cost: $ 110,702,275
