Ballot Issue 3D

The Weld County School District RE-1 Board of Education passed a resolution on August 17, 2016 to put a bond question on the ballot for the November 8, 2016 election.  Ballot Issue 3D reads as follows:

SHALL WELD COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 1 DEBT BE INCREASED BY $62 MILLION, WITH A MAXIMUM REPAYMENT COST OF $85,470,000, AND SHALL DISTRICT TAXES BE INCREASED NOT MORE THAN $5,995,000 ANNUALLY FOR THE FOLLOWING PURPOSES INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE FOLLOWING:

  • REPAIRING AND UPGRADING EXISTING SCHOOLS IN ORDER TO EXTEND THEIR USEFUL

  • LIFE, REDUCE COSTS OF EMERGENCY REPAIRS, AND IMPROVE ENERGY EFFICIENCY

  • BY REPLACING OUTDATED ROOFING, UPDATING HEATING AND VENTILATION SYSTEMS,

  • REPLACING SINGLE-PANE WINDOWS, REPLACING OUTDATED LIGHTING, AND

  • ADDRESSING DRAINAGE ISSUES;

  • IMPROVING ACCESSIBILITY FOR STUDENTS, STAFF AND VISITORS WITH DISABILITIES;

  • CONSTRUCTING CLASSROOM ADDITIONS TO NORTH VALLEY MIDDLE SCHOOL, AND

  • ADDING A NEW GYMNASIUM AT PLATTEVILLE ELEMENTARY;

  • MAINTAINING AND UPGRADING CLASSROOMS AND EQUIPMENT DISTRICT-WIDE;

AND SHALL THE MILL LEVY BE INCREASED IN ANY YEAR, WITHOUT LIMITATION OF RATE AND IN AN AMOUNT SUFFICIENT TO PAY THE ANNUAL DEBT SERVICE AS SET FORTH ABOVE OR ANY REFUNDING DEBT (OR TO CREATE A RESERVE FOR SUCH PAYMENT), SUCH DEBT TO BE EVIDENCED BY THE ISSUANCE OF GENERAL OBLIGATION BONDS; SUCH BONDS TO BE SOLD

IN ONE SERIES OR MORE, FOR A PRICE ABOVE OR BELOW THE PRINCIPAL AMOUNT OF SUCH SERIES, ON TERMS AND CONDITIONS, AND WITH SUCH MATURITIES AS PERMITTED BY LAW AND AS THE DISTRICT MAY DETERMINE, INCLUDING PROVISIONS FOR REDEMPTION OF THE BONDS PRIOR TO MATURITY WITHOUT PAYMENT OF A PREMIUM?

Arguments For:

  • Need to repair and renovate the district's school buildings to extend their useful life.

  • Will reduce costly emergency repairs and improve energy efficiency.

  • Good time to pursue a bond, given that borrowing costs are near or at historic lows.

  • Construction costs increasing, the longer we wait the more it will cost to fix our school facilities.

  • The district has not passed a bond issue since 1994 and repairs and deferred maintenance needs to be taken care of.


Arguments Against: 

  • In these uncertain times, this is not the right time to have any type of tax measure on the ballot.

  • The district should be putting money aside to address major repairs and renovations, instead of raising taxes.

  • Grants and other monies, like tax revenues from marijuana sales, should be pursued.

  • There is a lot of uncertainty about the future of Oil and Gas in Weld County.
