• How much will the $79.5 million bond measure cost?

    • Estimated tax rate $1.49 per $1,000 of assessed property value.
    • For a home valued at $200,000 the estimated rate would be $298 annually in property taxes or $24.83 a month.
    • For a home valued at $250,000 the estimated rate would be $372.50 annually in property taxes or $31.04 a month.
    • Estimated state matching funds is $6 million, this will be used to reduce overall project costs and/or reduce the bond amount, thus lowering the per thousand rate further.
