Items Pulled for Discussion
F. Board Office/Superintendent

8. Official Ballot Language


Mr. Ziegler asked for this item to be pulled for discussion.

Dr. Binggeli stated that when the language was last brought to the Board, there was some conversation on whether or not it should be six or ten years for the length of time on the ballot. He said that based on feedback they have heard from outside groups and polling results,  six years is best for the ballot language.  

Mr. Ziegler said that he agreed, but he wanted to make sure the community knew that six years would not solve our problems.

Dr. Murray commented that she continues to hear from the community that they want detail of what the money garnered from the surtax will be spent for line by line.  She said this needs to get out quickly.

Ms. Kneessy had asked about using the term collecting instead of levying.  Mr. Bistline clarified that the word levying had to be a part.

Dr. Krupp asked how soon the list of prioritized projects will be available after the language is approved. 

Dr. Binggeli asked for Dane Theodore, Assistant Superintendent of Facilities Services, to address when the prioritized list will be available.

Mr. Theodore explained  the process  and the plan was to have the prioritized list ready by the end of July.

Ms. Kneessy expressed her dissatisfaction with the list not being prepared until the end of July and wanted it made a priority and she also asked for the Board to be given the list prior to publication.  Additionally, she wanted for Mr. Theodore to indicate the schools that were never touched during  past facility renovations.


Approve the official ballot language for the one-half cent sales surtax:


Would you support the School Board levying a one-half cent surtax on sales in Brevard County, beginning 1/1/15, for a period of six years, to be used exclusively for critical school facility renewal projects, school security and technology upgrades? A needs-based prioritized list of projects has been published and expenditures will be monitored by an independent citizen oversight committee.
