    MSD Trustees unanimously approve $59,433,503 bond election for August 30th

    The Middleton Board of Trustees is asking Middleton patrons to approve a bond proposal for three projects. Read the resolution here:  Bond Election Resolution Calling a Special Election for the Proposition of Issuing General Obligation School Bonds of the District. 

    Marc Gee HeadshotFrom Superintendent Marc Gee:

    When creating a bond measure in an economy like ours, we also plan for cost escalation as products and services increase during the process.  The recommended cost escalation factor is 10%, which would come to $5,403,046.

    This would create a total proposed cost of $59,433,503 for the bonds.

    Currently, district patrons pay $161 dollars per $100,000 dollars of taxable property (after the Homeowners Exemption is calculated) for our school bonds. With the amount of growth occurring in our district, the expected cost per $100,000, initially would range from $140-160 per one hundred thousand, and that amount would be expected to decrease over time as the growth in our community continues. 

    We have several graphics that illustrate what happens if the bond passes by the required two-thirds majority vote. See those below. 

    This is a sizable request for the community, and requires that we, as a district, be as open and transparent as we can be.  To help provide information, we will hold meetings, send out information and answer your questions. We encourage all to be a part of the process and ask questions.  If you would like to host a cottage meeting or have any other questions, please contact me at mgee@msd134.org.
