The Peninsula School Board will hold a special meeting at 7 a.m. Wednesday July 31 at the school district office to discuss and possibly vote on a proposed tax measure. If approved, it would appear on the November general election ballot.
The measure under discussion is a capital levy. School districts use capital levies to fund construction and school improvement projects.
Taxes for capital levies usually run for a shorter time period and have a smaller price tag than do long-term bonds, which are the traditional route to financing school construction.
But levies need only a simple majority to pass, while bond measures require a 60-percent super-majority. In 2011, a $78 million bond measure failed at the polls.
