Happy Holidays from the Stevens Staff!
Spokane Public Schools will ask the
community to vote on a bond and a levy measure in Spokane County's Feb. 10
The proposed $145 million bond
maintains the district’s commitment to not increase local tax rate at no higher
than $1.96 per $1,000 of assessed property value, keeping costs manageable for
future Spokane generations (In fact, property assessments and prior bond
repayment schedules caused the scale and scope of projects for the 2015 bond to
be reduced in order to keep the flat tax rate.)
With voter approval of this
bond, Spokane Public Schools would receive approximately $25 million more from state matching funds
and, with savings from the 2009 bond, will have a total of $205 million to do
the proposed projects.
