Board Approves R.P.S.

When voters in the Dubuque Community School District head to the polls today, they will not only be voting for school board members, but also whether or not they want the district to continue spending revenue from the one cent sales tax on projects, like the recent renovations at Senior High School. Earlier this year the board approved a Revenue Purpose Statement that will appear on the ballot. District Finance Director Kevin Kelleher says if voters approved the measure, it will allow the district to continue to fund projects from money generated from the state approved one cent sales tax. Board President Tami Ryan says she believes the district is investing in projects that voters want them to do with the revenue from the sales tax. Ryan says voters need to understand that if they approve the Revenue Purpose Statement it will NOT raise their property taxes. The last time voters approved a Revenue Purpose Statement was in 2009.
