VOTE: September 8, 2020
To meet the growing needs of our students, the Bondurant-Farrar Board of Education is calling for a special election to be held on September 8, 2020 for the sale of up to $23 million in general obligation bonds. Funds generated from the passage of the bond referendum would help to alleviate capacity issues district buildings are facing due to rapid growth in student enrollment. Voter approval would allow the district to construct a new building to serve students in grades 7 and 8. Taxes will not be increased by the construction of these projects; the district is simply seeking a continuation of the current debt service tax.
The ballot will include a second public measure - a question regarding the district's Revenue Purpose Statement (RPS) which allows Bondurant-Farrar to use penny sales tax revenue to fund building and technology needs. If voters approve the RPS in September, the district will continue to be able to spend SAVE funds as Iowa law allows for the duration of the penny sales tax.
