At the Sept. 12 North Shore Board of Education meeting, trustees unanimously approved a $19.6 million Infrastructure Bond Referendum for the long-term financing of projects related to the health and safety of the students, faculty and staff. The average home owner will see no increase in their property taxes as a result of the proposed bond, since payments of the 2013-14 Infrastructure Bond will be phased in as older bonds are phased out and paid off.
Trustee Russo stated, “The bond will help keep the tax levy stable.”
