Solid Foundations, Strong Futures
VOTE: June 2, 2020 Ballot Question
On Tuesday, June 2, 2020, voters in the boundaries of the Belton School District voted to approve a $25 million no tax rate increase bond issue.
Belton School District #124 is home to more than 4,400 students who engage in unique and transformative educational experiences each and every day. Part of our responsibility as a school district is to ensure these high-quality opportunities continue in facilities and grounds that support, protect, and encourage their efforts. While many things have changed over the last few months, our long-term facility & finance needs have not.
The ballot issue was a no tax rate increase providing funds to improve safety & security, replace roofs and parking lots, and to pay off leasing which completed high school construction, maintenance, & other previous roofing projects.
Shall Belton School District #124 of Cass County, Missouri borrow money in the amount of $25,000,000 for the purpose of acquiring, constructing, renovating, improving, furnishing and equipping school facilities of the District, including:
- constructing additions and improvements to District facilities to provide secure entrances;
- replacing and repairing roofs at District facilities;
- improving and repairing District parking lot facilities; and
- completing facility maintenance and improvement projects throughout the District and acquiring school facilities currently leased by the District through the prepayment and refinancing of such leases, and issue bonds for the payment thereof resulting in no increase to the debt service levy?
The debt service levy of the District is estimated to remain unchanged at $1.7581 per one hundred dollars assessed valuation of real and personal property.
