School bond passes!
Posted on 05/18/2016

Last night, the McMinnville School District (MSD) bond (measure 36-177) passed “handily,” according to the News-Register.  Over 60 percent of voters cast a “yes” vote.

The measure will fund a new vocational technical center at McMinnville High School and bring energy and safety upgrades and other repairs to schools across the district.

The successful bond also means the district will receive an additional $7.1 million in state matching funds.  

The May bond proposal is not expected to increase the current property tax rate of $2.80 per $1,000 assessed value. Keeping the tax rate the same is possible because a previous bond will end in 2016.
