WATSONVILLE — If the Pajaro Valley Unified School District Board of Trustees approves a $190 million bond measure to fund a list of construction and maintenance projects at the board meeting Wednesday, the issue is likely to go before voters in November.
But with a senior activist group vowing to voice its opposition, approval is far from certain.
At the May 30 board meeting the trustees tentatively approved the bond, with trustees Jeff Ursino and Sandra Nichols dissenting.
Both expressed concern that the bond, which would add an estimated $45 - $49 per $100,000 on estimated home value for PVUSD voters over the next 35 years, is too much of a burden for homeowners facing their own economic difficulties.
Nichols suggested that the board consider a scaled-back, $150 million bond which she said would still fund a majority of the projects and is more likely to pass muster with voters.For the complete article see the 06-12-2012 issue.
