Tomorrow night, Tuesday, July 19, 7:00pm, the Batavia School Board will vote to put a referendum on the Nov. ballot, “to build and equip a new H.C. Storm School and a new Louise White School and demolish the existing buildings, and alter, repair, equip and improve its other school facilities, including but not limited to installing student safety and security enhancements and improving roofs, floors, windows, HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems, and improve the sites thereof (the “Project”) at an estimated cost of $140,000,000“.
Also on the agenda is the tentative budget for the next school year. It looks like a 2% increase at the moment, but given the Board’s history of taxing to the max every year and the current sky high inflation, that number may go up (to a maximum 5% increase or CPI, whichever is lower).
Attend the meeting if you can. More info here: https://go.boarddocs.com/il/bps101/Board.nsf/Public
