La Grande School District to seek a bond
It is official, the La Grande School District will ask voters to approve a $31.85 million bond levy in November.
The school board unanimously approved a resolution on Wednesday to seek a $31.85 million bond levy for major maintenance and capital construction. The school district has been looking into the possibility of seeking a bond for about a year.
The bond levy's big ticket item is the replacement of Central Elementary School, which was built in 1954. The bond levy calls for $14.6 million to be spent on the replacement of Central.
The proposed levy which would cost taxpayers $1.99 a year per $1,000 of assessment property value. This means the owner of a $100,000 home would pay $199 a year in additional property taxes.
