The Fort Zumwalt School District is asking voters to approve a no-tax-increase $15 million bond issue for district-wide improvements on April 2, according to STLtoday.com.

A bond issue is a loan made by the district with permission of the registered voters in the district. General obligation bonds must pass with four-sevenths of the majority vote.
In 2011, 66.49 percent of local voters approved Fort Zumwalt's Proposition 1. The proposition requested $18.5 million in general obligation bonds with no tax increase for residents, to help pay off a leasehold revenue bond issue passed in 1997, and free up between $3 million and $4 million per year in the district’s operating fund.
