Concord residents…a temporary stay of execution..

We found this information on the Riverside School’s website:

thumbs up   The Riverside Local School District’s Board of Education has decided not to place a Bond Levy on the ballot this November.

The Board will continue discussion as to when to place the Bond Levy on the ballot in the future. 

The District’s Facilities Plan – which was approved by the Board of Education in February of 2016 – consists of a three-phase plan to build new schools. Phase I of the project is nearly complete as the District passed a Bond Levy in November of 2016 to construct two new elementary schools, while closing down Hadden, Hale Road, Leroy and Madison Avenue elementary schools. The two new elementary schools will open in time for the 2019-2020 school year. 

Phase II would allow the District to build a new 6-12 Complex on the current Riverside Campus property and then the District would ultimately convert LaMuth Middle School into a third elementary school as part of Phase III (which would require no additional funding). Melridge Elementary and/or Buckeye Elementary would then close (depending on enrollment at that time). 

Facilities Plan updates will be provided as they become available. 

Hmmmm image

(LFC Comments: We are not privy to the reason behind the decision to postpone placing a $67 – $100 million bond levy on the ballot.  However, with the Concord Trustees contemplating putting a Fire Station Levy on the November ballot, the school officials might have thought that the “timing” was not right, and one or both of the onerous property tax levies would have been defeated.

Unfortunately, this is only a temporary reprieve for those taxpayers in the Riverside School District.  Like the Terminator movie character, the school district’s motto is “I’ll be back”….for more!)

  12. No…they will NEVER put it on a big election ballot. It would never pass, especially when they inferred that this last levy would be it. No, these deceitful people prefer to place a levy on the ballot in an off year…in May…and keep it all hush hush…no signs…no promotion…totally stealth. And then WHAMO! It passed when nobody is looking…low voter turnout…they know this. The lobbyists the schools work with, which are paid for by our tax dollars (nothing like funding your own destruction right?) likely told them any levy on the November ballot would go down in flames, as you so aptly put it, because Concord wants a continuous levy for 2 brand spanking new fire stations they don’t need. Despicable indeed!
