The Pierce City R-6 School Board has voted to place two bond issues on the April 5 ballot. Pierce City voters will have the opportunity to decide on exactly what improvements they wish to see made at the R-6 campus when they go to the polls and vote.
Proposition 2 asks voters to approve a $2.4 million bond issue for site development, construction, equipping and furnishing a new middle school. If only Prop 2 passes, this would not place an increased tax burden on Pierce City residents. The debt service will remain unchanged at 66 cents per $100 of assessed valuation of real and personal property.
Proposition 3 proposes a $700,000 bond issue for the purpose of providing funds for the development, construction, equipping and furnishing of a new vocational-agricultural facility. If only Prop 3 passes, the current debt service levy would remain unchanged at 66 cents per $100.
