Bonds will be issued in multiple series; each maturing within 31 years from issuance. Estimated annual tax rate would be $2.99 per $1,000 of assessed property value (not real market value). The 2024 tax rate is $1.80, if passed the proposed bond would increase the tax rate by an estimated $1.19 per $1,000 of taxable assessed value.

The owner of a home with an assessed value of $250,000 would have to pay an estimated $25 more per month or $300 more per year.

Actual rates may vary due to interest rates and changes in taxable assessed value. Check out our Bond Estimated Cost Calculator below for a closer estimate.
