Benton-Carroll-Salem Local Schools
Bond Issue for a New K—7 School
$12.83 per month on $100,000 home
The Facts…In a Nutshell
Who: A grass-roots Facilities Planning Committee made up of 50 community members decided we should build a new K—7 School plus minor renovations to the high school after studying all options and listening to the community at two open meetings. As part of their study, the committee decided that renovations of the Middle School (14 million) and R.C. Waters (10 million) did not make sense.
What: A New K—7 School on 13 acres of land west of the Medical Center on SR 163 to open in Fall 2019, plus minor renovation of Oak Harbor High School that would address safety and security issues. There would be no disruption of current athletic fields/tennis courts/Ag fields.
Why: A new building will help to meet 21st Century educational needs. Our current Middle School (now 104 years old) and R.C. Waters were designed to meet the educational needs of a different time. A new building is an investment in the future for the students and the community.
How much: $12.83 per month on $100,000 home (4.4 mills). The money could only be used for buildings and not for salaries/operating expenses.
Why Now: The educational need exists now… Plus, Davis-Besse will pay 38 cents on the dollar for the new building now due to its high property valuation! The longer we wait the more construction prices and interest rates will increase.
When will we vote: You must be registered by July 5, 2016.Early voting is
July 6 through August 1 at the Ottawa Co. Board of Elections. Election Day is August 2. Due to its importance, this will be the only issue on the ballot.
