Fall bond measure confirmed Roaring Fork School District

The Roaring Fork School District will have a bond measure on the fall ballot. The District is asking voters to fund a 122 million bond measure to pay for a long list of capital improvements. If passed, it would come out an average about $22 a month for homes worth $500,000. 

  Superintendent Diana Sirko says the investment is worth it for area residents. “Having high quality schools is obviously an important factor for every single community,” she explained Wednesday night. “And in terms of people’s property values, having effective facilities to be able to offer our effective instructional programs is obviously a key component.”

The money would pay for constructing a new elementary school, repairing facilities to make them more safe, and paying to build or buy teacher housing. Many voters in the area will also consider a property tax measure for the Carbondale and Rural Fire Protection District.
