Bond Levy FAQs
CAN THE CONSTRUCTION BOND LEVY BE USED TO FILL THE BUDGET SHORTFALL?
Despite current economic shortfalls in State school spending, the Construction Bond Levy proceeds cannot be spent on operating expenses. By law, HRCSD may only spend the Construction Bond Levy money within the scope of projects identified in the Ballot Measure.
The School Board knows that the Construction Bond Projects are needed to keep our school buildings safe and operating efficiently. As well, the construction projects which will begin in summer 2009, are expected to provide employment for local workers and spur our local economy. So, construction projects will proceed as planned and support our local taxpaying workers.
