August 2017: Xenia Residents: Vote Yes to Support Our Schools – Aug 8 2017 (or early vote now)

Scheduled for Tuesday August 8, 2017 12:00PM

Please vote yes on the Xenia Community School bond issue.  Early voting times are here.  Polling locations by precinct number are here.  You can also call the Board of Elections at 937-562-6170 for information on polling locations and early voting.
Bond Issue Information:   “Why can’t we just repair and/or renovate our existing buildings?  According to the State’s assessment, the renovations needed for the middle school and high school alone total a cost of over $46 million- well over two thirds the cost of constructing new, up to date, buildings.  In addition, spending millions of dollars to repair these aging buildings would not include any expansion to accommodate current and future enrollment and would not bring them up to a standard needed to prepare students for the 21st century.” …… Xenia Community School Superintendent’s Weekly Update March, 2017.
“The State of Ohio has offered to pay $28.5 million (approximately 40%) to help replace Warner Middle School and Xenia High School, contingent upon the passage of a bond issue to fund the local share. The State’s offer runs out this August…..Without voter approval August 8th, State money goes away and the school district would be faced with trying to fund the needed repairs and renovations using general fund dollars.”
“The cost to the taxpayer would be $12.26 per month per $100,000 of appraised property value.”……  From Xenia Community Schools Flyer
For questions, please contact Christy Fielding, Assistant Superintendent of Business Operations, at 937-376-2961,
