On the evening of January 14, 2014, in the KHS Auditorium, the Keene School Board of Education led a Public Hearing to discuss the six articles which would be present on the warrant to be voted on in March. You still have an opportunity to express your opinion and ask questions! Join the discussion and add comments.
Bond, Budget, & Warrant 2014/2015 Public Hearing
Shall the District raise and appropriate the sum of $12,850,000 for renovations and alterations at the elementary schools of the District; with such sum to be raised through the issuance of bonds or notes in accordance with the provisions of the Municipal Finance Act (RSA Chapter 33); and to authorize the Board of Education to issue and negotiate such bonds or notes and to determine the rate of interest on the bonds or notes; and to raise and appropriate an additional sum of $332,494 for the first year’s interest payment on the bond?
(Note: This appropriation is in addition to Article 2, the operating budget article. Approval of this article will require a 3/5ths ballot vote at the second session. The Board of Education recommends a “yes” vote upon this question.)
