The Board of Education of the Davis School District passed a resolution Tuesday authorizing the issuance and sale of not more than $43 million of the 2009 voter-approved bonds.
By law, the resolution allows for a 30-day comment period before the actual sale of those bonds.
The bond money would be used to build a new elementary school in west Farmington and a new elementary school in west Kaysville to alleviate current overcrowding in nearby existing schools. It would also complete renovations at Millcreek Junior High and finance other building improvements in the district.
Bond monies can only be used for brick and mortar projects and cannot be used for employee salaries.
Approximately $35 million of the original $250 million voter-approved bond remains unspent and is expected to be issued in 2016. Bonds already issued from the 2009 bond built Centennial Junior High, Odyssey and Wasatch elementary schools, and the Vista Special Education Campus. Bonds were also used to complete phase II of South Weber Elementary’s K-2 Center, phase II of Layton High expansion, renovate Central Davis Junior High and Bountiful High and purchase property for future school sites.
