School City of Mishawaka ballot referendum for capital funds

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -

On the November 8 ballot, voters in the School City of Mishawaka district will vote on two referendums, one for capital expenditures and one for operating levy.

Shall the School City of Mishawaka, St. Joseph County, Indiana, issue bonds or enter into a lease to finance the 2017/2018 school building basic renewal restoration and safety project which consists of restoring all or a portion of the basic site and building components including safety and accessibility measures to all or any portion of the approximately eleven school buildings, including the Administrative Center, Services Building, and Baker Park, and any building that the Board of School Trustees determines is in response to a natural disaster, an accident, or an emergency that makes the building unavailable for its intended use, which is estimated to cost not more than $13 million and is estimated to increase the property tax rate for debt service by  $0.1678 per $100 of assessed valuation?
