The Board of Directors passed a resolution in June to place the Secure an Advanced Vision for Education Fund (SAVE) Revenue Purpose Statement language on the November 2, 2021 election ballot. The passing of the revenue purpose statement will give the district authorization to continue using the 1-cent sales and service tax dollars for the purposes listed below. This is not a new tax or new use of funds, but rather voter authorization to extend the allowable uses through the year 2050 (current district language expires in 2029).
The district is asking Calamus Wheatland constituents to vote YES on the Revenue Purpose Statement on the November 2nd election ballot. Please feel free to contact the district administration office with any questions.
