Unity School District voters to decide on $2.75 million bond to finish elementary school
If the proposed $2.75 million bond to finish the new elementary school is approved, it would guarantee Unity children would be in the new school by September, said McGoodwin.
The new project managers are Trumbull-Nelson Construction Company, Inc. and Banwell Architects.
Consequences of rejection
According to the SAU’s figures, Unity’s current school tax rate is $18.01. If the school bond is approved, the 2014-2015 school tax rate would increase to $18.90. If the school bond vote fails, 2014-2015 school tax rate would increase to $25.10.
“If you don’t finish the school, you don’t get a dime,” he said.
Also about $900,000 in contributions from charitable groups accepted contingent on the finishing the project would have to be returned if the bond isn’t approved, he said.
In August 2010, voters approved a $4.7 million bond to build the new school for Unity children from kindergarten to Grade 8 at a special meeting after state officials ordered Unity Elementary School closed due to unresolved fire and building code violations.
In July 2013, the state Fire Marshal’s Office placed a stop work order on construction, so the school building wasn’t ready last fall.
In February, the state Fire Marshal’s Office granted Trumbull-Nelson permission to resume construction.
More information about the project is available on the Unity Elementary School website under Unity School Building Construction Information. The Unity Elementary School website is www.edline.net/pages/UnityElementary.
