Elgin Public Schools Bond Issue
March 7, 2017 


On January 3, 2017, the Elgin Board of Education voted unanimously for a resolution to call for a bond election. The bond was restructured using input from the community and stakeholders through survey and meetings. The bond issue presented to voters was $36,910,000 and is estimated to result in a 2.99% tax increase for residents' beginning on the 2018 tax bill. On March 7, 2017, voters approved the bond proposal by 61.55%. The next phase is coordination with the district's architects, construction manager, and accountants to plan bond projects. We are extremely grateful to the Elgin community for their support. Thank you to the parents and community members on the Vote Yes Committee for their organization and leadership. Thank you to the Elgin Chamber of Commerce for their endorsement. We truly appreciate the entire community for their contributions. For any further questions, please email Mr. Nate Meraz, Superintendent at nmeraz@elginps.net or call (580) 492-3663.
