HR School Board Approves Bond Measure For May Ballot

The Hood River County School District board formally approved a resolution to put a 20-year, 57-million dollar bond measure on the May ballot that will not raise the current tax rate, address major maintenance needs at all of the district’s facilities, and construct a new May Street Elementary School on the same property as it is located now.  Long-time board member Jan Veldhuisen-Virk said the decision to commit the tax rate for the 20-year term was difficult, but added the district’s facility needs were too numerous not to take the step.  The bond measure was developed over a number of months involving a number of different school district personnel and community members.  The district has a bond expiring this year, so this measure would not raise the current tax rate.    Another district bond comes off the books in 2023.
