During the Warren School Board meeting conducted Tuesday, the board voted to request a special election be called February 9, 2021 for the purpose of authorizing a special 5 mill tax levy to pay for the construction of a new elementary school and a new modern gym for basketball and activities.
More information will be forthcoming to inform the voters of the Warren School District. The district has been approved for over $6 million in state funding to help fund the elementary school. The millage increase will put the Warren district millage at about the same as surrounding school districts.
Jason Holsclaw, senior vice president of Public Finance Department for Stephens, Inc., was present to discuss the bond issue that will be utilized to pay for the new construction if the millage is approved. Holsclaw went over the resolution that calls the election and explained how the process will work. He answered questions from the board.
