Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 11:20pm
DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION
South Washington County Independent School District 833 is proposing the purchase of land for a future building site. The total cost of the proposed land acquisition is not to exceed $8,000,000, plus bond issuance costs. The additional land is needed to accommodate the district\'s long-term facility needs based on projected student enrollment increases.
The district will request voter approval in a referendum on November 5, 2013 for authority to issue general obligation bonds to finance the land purchase. If approved by the voters, the district will certify debt service fund levies annually to make the annual bond payments beginning with the Pay 2014 levy.
School board approval is required to proceed with the project. The school board believes that the proposed land purchase is in the best interest of the district.
REVIEW AND COMMENT STATEMENT
Based upon the department\'s analysis of the school district\'s required documentation and other pertinent information from sources of the Minnesota Department of Education, the commissioner of Education is providing a positive review and comment for this project.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE
Persons desiring additional information regarding this proposal should contact the school district superintendent\'s office.
