A General Obligation Bond is a kind of tax paid by property owners. In short, the District sells bonds to investors to get the money to pay for the projects. Property owners pay the costs of the bonds and interest to those who purchased the bonds through the annual property tax process.
Three projects are planned. First, Old Dixon High School will be repaired, renovated, and reopened as a middle school campus for Grades 6-8. Second, Anderson Elementary will be repaired and renovated, improving classrooms, restrooms, food service areas, and electrical, plumbing and heating and cooling systems across campus. Third, Tremont, Gretchen Higgins and Silveyville campuses will receive improvements in safety and security as well as accessibility for the disabled.
Yes. The District advertised and held two special meetings on Saturdays to allow for public input as well as numerous presentations and discussions at our regular Governing Board meetings. District staff and Board members also had extensive consultation with the Solano County Taxpayers Association.
The total amount of the bond is $30,400,000. About $15,000,000 would be used at Old Dixon High, $12,000,000 at Anderson, and the rest for the smaller projects at Tremont, Gretchen Higgins, and Silveyville campuses.
The cost for each property owner depends on the assessed value of their property. The County Assessor determines that figure and our property taxes are based on it. Measure Q has a projected maximum tax rate of $36.75 per $100,000 of assessed value.
