Revenue Purpose Statement Re-Act

Last week voters in the Dubuque Community School district overwhelmingly passed the “revenue purpose statement.” That will allow the district to continue spending revenue generated from the state approved one cent sales tax on projects like the renovations at Senior and Hempstead High Schools. The passage of the RPS does not raise property taxes. School board president Tami Ryan says the board can now start planning for new projects for the district. Board member Mike Donohue says the community has always been passionate about student achievement, and the number of voters who adopted the measure shows that they have confidence in the board to select the right projects for the district. 5,564 eligible voters supported the “revenue purpose statement” while 1,125 voted against it.
