Thank you to the Martinez community for voting to pass the school bonds Measure K ($45 million) in 2010 and Measure R ($120 million) in 2016. This proves that strong communities build stronger schools. We appreciate the community for their support in helping us build better tomorrows for all MUSD students.
Bond Refinance Saves Taxpayers $1.36+ Million
In July, the Martinez Unified School District refinanced $9.9 million in general obligation bonds which will save District property owners over $1.3 million in property taxes over the next 10 years. The District took advantage of very low interest rates due to the coronavirus pandemic and overall economic uncertainty to refinance Measure K bonds approved by voters in 2010.
The refunded 2011 Bonds were paying an interest rate of 5.875%; the 2020 Refunding Bonds are paying an average rate of 1.54%. This difference in rates saves taxpayers more than $1.36 million over the next 10 years. This is inclusive of professional fees and does not extend the term of the original 2011 Bonds.
MUSD is currently seeking applicants for vacancies on the
Citizens' Oversight Committee for Measure K and Measure R.
Applicants must be:
