Logan school board sets November bond vote
June 21, 2023
The Logan Municipal Schools board last week approved a resolution that schedules an election this fall for general-obligation bond issue of up to $1.1 million.
Superintendent Dennis Roch said the bond issue won’t raise local property taxes.
“I’m proud of the way that the board has been very intentional about managing the long-term finances of the district to stabilize rates for our local taxpayers while ensuring we can accomplish our facility goals,” Roch stated in an email.
The question will be on the Nov. 7 ballot.
Early voting for the measure will be from Oct. 10 through Nov. 4, according to the Quay County Clerk’s Office.
According to a five-year facility master plan the board approved in May, the top priorities with the bond issue are:
— Security upgrades to the main entrance;
— Internal passageway construction to the family and consumer sciences and vocational agriculture area;
— Security fencing;
— Sidewalk repairs and replacement;
— Playing surface renovations;
— Door and lock replacement;
— Americans with Disabilities Act upgrades to parking areas of the football field.
Roch said the district’s voters historically have approved previous bond ballots.
He added that “such support helps us maintain the best facilities for our students.”
The board during its meeting last week at Nara Visa also renewed the contract with RBC Capital Markets, which is the district’s financial adviser.
