Voters to Decide on $15 Million Bond Issue For Fort Zumwalt in April

According to STLtoday.com, the money would provide for improvements throughout the district, including the addition of security cameras in all schools.

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

According to the article, improvements would include:

  • A new center for students with autism/behavioral issues
  • Expanding music education rooms at Zumwalt West Middle 
  • Improving parking lots, heating, air conditioning, painting, etc. 
  • Additional security cameras in middle and elementary schools 

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.
