The City is holding a special election on Tuesday December 9th. There is one question on the ballot. This referendum question is required to approve the use of $1.7M in surplus funds from the Bresnahan Elementary School project to be reallocated to build a baseball field at the Nock-Molin, replacing the one that was displaced from the Bresnahan site, and to repair the athletic facilities, including the track, at Fuller Field.
It is important to note that if this funding is approved, the total debt exclusion cost for the school projects and these fields is still set to come in approximately $1.5M under budget from what was projected back in June 2012. A summary of the tax impact of the initial debt exclusions for the two schools and Senior/Community Center projects as well as the potential impact of the debt exclusion for these two field projects is below.
A YES vote means that you support this use of funding for improving the capacity and quality of athletic fields at the Nock-Molin and Fuller facilities.
A NO vote means that you do not approve of this use of funding for these purposes.
The City held a public meeting on Tuesday December 2nd at 6:30pm in City Hall Auditorium on City-wide field space needs and the importance of the projects at these two key locations. The presentation from that meeting is also provided below.
