Referendum on upcoming May 2 ballot 


A special election will be held May 2, and the Westfield Washington Schools are proposing a tax increase of approximately 30 cents per $100 of assessed value. This would cost $32 a month for a $250,000 home.

The ballot question will read: “Shall Westfield Washington Schools issue bonds or enter into a lease to finance the 2017 Capacity, Safety, Efficiency, Renovation and Technology project which includes the renovation of and improvements to Westfield Elementary Schools, Intermediate School, Middle School and High School, which is estimated to cost no more than $90,000,000 and is estimated to increase the property tax rate for debt service by a maximum of $.3079 per $100 of assessed valuation?”
