Grandview Voters Decide on School Bonds
By John Sharp
Voter approval also is being sought on April 4 for a $9 million no tax increase general obligation bond issue for renovation and remodeling of existing school facilities in the Grandview C-4 School District.
The District has paid off enough debt from previous bond issues to pay for the proposed bond issue without raising the existing debt levy.
Proposed improvements include classroom and restroom renovations, new corridor flooring, installation of sports flooring in elementary gymnasiums, fire alarm system upgrades, roofing and HVAC improvements, parking lot improvements, fencing and lighting upgrades, new high school stadium bleachers and band instrument replacement.
According to a 3-year plan for the proposed improvements on the District’s website, about 39 per cent of the bond proceeds will go for safety and security upgrades, about 28 per cent will go for roofing and HVAC improvements and about 25 per cent will go for classroom and restroom renovations.
The Grandview School District includes the Martin City area and goes north to 115th St. between State Line Rd. and Blue River Rd.
