Prop KIDS FAQs 4 How much will Prop KIDS cost me after the bonds are paid off? ● The median home price in Bates County is $102,000. Assessed at 19% of market value, the $1.0086 per $100 of assessed value will cost this homeowner $195 per year. The $1.0086 levy generates $460,000 in revenue per year for the district which is about 10% of the total district budget.

Why are we collecting more money than we need to make our bond payments? ● Assessed Values and the amount of assessed property has increased significantly resulting in more revenue being collected. A YES Vote lets us place this extra money in high interest savings for future facility improvements. A NO Vote lets us pay off very low interest bonds up to 3 years earlier.

YES--The board can flex the "extra" debt service levy into capital projects at a higher interest rate to meet future facility needs while keeping the total levy the same at $4.4269 and generating more interest income. NO--The debt service levy will be used to pay off existing, low-interest bonds up to 3 years earlier than the current final payment in 2031. Then the levy drops to $3.4183 and the district will lose over $460,000 in annual revenue.

Why does the district need these funds to become part of operating revenue? ● Operating costs and minimum wage and salary continue to increase at a much faster pace than state and federal aid or local revenues. ● The interest rate the district is earning on reserves and cash flow is very high right now.

Proposition KIDS Town Hall and Information Here's a sample of what just went out in the weekly District Newsletter. The link to sign up is at the end: The weather wasn't very cooperative last night, but we had a couple of community members who up to learn about Prop KIDS and then take a tour of the greenhouse which was paid for by a large grant and then district funds. A couple of years ago, the board refinanced our debt at a lower interest rate. This cut 3 years off of the life of the loan. Since then, both the assessment and amount of personal property in the district has increased bringing in more revenue than what our payments require. The board has two options: lower the tax rate or prepay the loans faster than scheduled. Proposition KIDS provides a 3rd alternative. If voters choose to approve Prop KIDS, the board can then flex the surplus revenue into operating funds to help with building and equipment repairs and maintenance before things reach a point where the board has to ask for more debt to be taken out. The money the board flexes into operating funds earns a much higher interest rate than what we are paying on our debt providing even more revenue for the district. If voters don't approve Prop KIDS, then the debt will be paid off around 2028 or so and then the $1.0086 levy will fall off. This will drop district revenues by about $460,000 per year...or about 10% of the district's annual budget. The district has leveraged millions of dollars in grant money and stretched our dollar as far as we can. Operating costs and minimum salaries continue to increase at a rapid rate while state funding has been flat for almost 10 years. From now until the election, I will continue to post more information about Prop KIDS so the public can make an informed decision before going to the polls on April 2.
