Agenda Item #31


Title
Referendum for One-Half Cent Sales Tax

Discussion

In response to Board discussion at the September 24, 2013 Board Meeting, this agenda item is intended to seek the School Board's approval to move forward with a sales tax referendum for the November 4, 2014 ballot.

This should be viewed as the initial step in the process leading up to November, 2014.  Following Board approval of the sales tax referendum on October 22, 2013, staff will develop actual ballot and resolution language to bring back to the Board for information at their November 19, 2013 Board meeting, with final language approval at the December 10, 2013 Board meeting.



Recommendation
Approve moving forward with a one-half cent sales tax referendum for the November 4, 2014 ballot.
