District wants to borrow $3.5 million; issue wouldn't increase tax levy

The Palmyra School Board has voted to put a bond issue on April's ballot that wouldn't increase the district's tax levy.

The Board voted Monday night to approve a resolution putting the issue before voters. The School District plans to borrow $3.5 million for improvements to various school buildings. They include safety and security access control upgrades at the high school, renovating the high school Vo-Ag Building classrooms and restrooms and the middle school kitchen, building an athletic complex with a new all-weather track and activity field, expanding the high school weight room with an addition to house the wrestling program and renovating and upgrading the elementary school playground. The bond issue would not increase the district's tax levy of 68 cents per $100 assessed valuation.

The School Board also voted to extend Superintendent Kirt Malone's contract to a third year.
