08 Mar 2013 11:41 AM | Vickie Wolgast (Administrator)

The South Kansas City Chamber Board of Directors recently had a unanimous vote to support the passage of a $9 million no-tax-increase general obligation bond that the Grandview C-4 School District Board of Education has placed on the April 2, 2013 ballot.

 

If the proposed bond issue is approved, funds will be used to continue the renovation and remodeling of existing school facilities. The projects initially proposed include such areas as safety and security enhancements, classroom renovations and improvements, restroom renovations, athletic and fine arts facility improvements, roof repairs/replacements, parking lot improvements and heating, ventilation and air conditioning improvements.The district’s facilities improvement team (consisting of district administration, staff, board members and community members) will review and prioritize the proposed projects.

 

District voters approved a $7 million bond issue in 2011. These funds were utilized in 2012 to fund numerous projects throughout the district. There are some funds remaining, which will be used to support projects this summer. Voter approval of the $9 million no-tax-increase general obligation bond issue will allow the district to continue making improvements to district facilities. Additionally, the current economic climate is favorable for borrowing money.
