North Polk CSD Announces Special Election Bond Referendum

Click here to open and read the official announcement regarding the special election being held Februrary 7, 2017

Copied From the document:

NORTH POLK CSD ANNOUNCES SPECIAL ELECTION BOND REFERENDUM  

To meet the growing needs of our students, the North Polk Board of Education is calling for a special election to be held on February 7, 2017, for the sale of up to $5.2 million in general obligation bonds.  This would cover construction of additions and renovations to West Elementary and the middle school.

General obligation tax bonds are used to build schools and additions. Bonds must have voter approval at an election called a referendum. This vote requires a 60 percent super-majority (plus one) “YES” vote to pass.

Project Overview:
West Elementary Addition and Middle School Renovation ● A six classroom academic wing at West Elementary  ● A multi-functional media center at the middle school ● Additional cafeteria space at West Elementary and the middle school ● Improved security design at the front entrances of West Elementary and the middle school

Increased Enrollment:
North Polk schools has experienced growth in student enrollment.  This fall we have 1,685 students in seats, including preschool.  This is an increase of 366 students since the spring of 2011, or approximately 61 additional students annually over the last 6 years.  As a result, West Elementary is projected to exceed capacity limits as soon as next school year, 2017-18.  Additional space and security measures are needed to meet our student and community needs.

Tax Impact:
Voters will be asked to extend the existing debt service tax which is due to expire in the 2029-30 school year, this is not a new tax.  We’re simply asking for a continuation of the debt service tax, which is only a portion of your total property tax bill.  With voter approval, this tax will be extended through the 2034-35 school year.

Voting Details:
Polls are open from 7AM-8PM on February 7, 2017.  Residents in the North Polk School District who are over 18 years of age and a registered voter can cast a ballot.  A non-​registered resident can sign up to vote at the polling location by providing proof of age and residence.

Additional Information:  To learn more about this important vote, we invite you to attend a community meeting, visit our website at www.northpolk.org​, or contact the North Polk Administration Office at 515-984-3400 (Option #5).  We will do our best to answer questions promptly.

The Following Community Meetings Are Open To The Public: January 18th at 6:00pm in the West Elementary (Cafeteria), Polk City  January 19th at 7:30pm in the Middle School (Cafeteria), Alleman

District Maps: Click here for a map to determine which district your residence is assigned to

More info on the Neighborhood Citizen Group program (from http://polkcityia.gov/)

Neighborhood Citizen Group (NCG)

Premise:  A neighborhood based group of citizens willing to reach out to their neighbors to obtain input and consensus on areas affecting their neighborhood and the city as a whole.  The intent is to allow a platform for different opinions without resorting to agendas.

Role of NCG Members:  Deliver ideas from the different areas making up the group to the City Council.  The neighborhood representative will need to be speaking on behalf of his or her neighbors and able to represent a cross section of the community in representing their neighborhood in periodic summary reports to the City Council.

Neighborhood Areas:  It is envisioned that this NCG will be made up of seven (7) members representing neighborhoods as later defined.  The City Liaison will call the meetings on at least a quarterly basis.  The City Liaison will not be one of the seven members but will act as Chair.  A City Council member will act as the Council Liaison to this group.  The make-up will be from six (6) districts, (see attached map) and one (1) from the Chamber.

Term:  Term of office will be two (2) years, with no restriction on term limits.  The NCG members will be governed under the City’s rules on absenteeism.  They will be expected to attend a suggested format of quarterly meetings.  One (1) member from the NCG should be in attendance at each of the Council Meetings in a rotation manner.  The group will report subjects of concern and discussion within their neighborhood area.
