Public meeting Thursday for Albia school bond project | News

ALBIA — With a special election now less than a month away, citizens will have another alternative to hear from school officers about an upcoming bond referendum.

The second group meeting will take place Thursday, Aug. 18 at 6 p.m. at the Albia Junior-Senior High School Library. A community coffee is also scheduled for Aug. 25 at 10 a.m. on the Albia Chamber of Commerce.

School district officials are proposing safety and science improvements at the Albia Junior-Senior High School, a Junior-Senior High Activity Complex and a Monroe County Sports Complex.

The district has not issued bonds since 1993, it says, instead funding infrastructure enhancements through the state’s 1-cent gross sales tax program generally identified as SAVE.

However, SAVE funds aren’t sufficient for the tasks that make up the referendum for the Sept. 13 election.

The three initiatives, funded through one bond referendum, are estimated to cost between $13.34 million-$15.43 million. The three initiatives all make-up roughly one-third of the whole finances for funding.

One challenge would improve security at the Junior-Senior High School with a model new entryway that may better limit visitor entry. The project would also include increasing the science classroom to create a next-generation learning setting.

A second venture would improve the prevailing exercise complex with an all-weather floor, rising accessibility for the disabled, outdoor restroom facilities, a new concession stand and lobby space, and new storage.

The third challenge centers across the Monroe County Sports Complex, which the county has offered to sell to the college district for $1. Proposed enhancements there include expanded parking and a new ticket booth, new restrooms and a new concession stand.

The tax impression would range on every property’s assessed value, however a home assessed at $100,000 would price $133.06 per 12 months, according to district officers. A 500-acre farm assessed at a median worth of $561 per acre would cost an additional $674.34 per 12 months, and a business property assessed at $200,000 would see a rise of $486 a year.

More information may be found on the district’s web site, albiacsd.org.
