FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Coconino County voters within the Page Unified School District #8 (PUSD) and Williams Unified School District #2 (WUSD) will consider override election questions, while those within the Flagstaff Unified School District #1 (FUSD) will decide a special bond election.
In November, Flagstaff voters will decide a Special Bond Election, which will allow the district to issue and sell Class B general obligation bonds in the principal amount of not to exceed $20,790,000 to fund capital improvements.
Williams Unified School District voters will decide the issue of an override election to exceed its revenue control limit by 10 percent. They will be asked to vote on whether, “To adopt a General Maintenance and Operation Budget which exceeds the revenue control limit specified by statute by ten percent for fiscal years 2013-2014 through 2017-2018, such percentage of the District’s allowable revenue control limit will be phased down by one-third in fiscal year 2018-2019 and two-third in fiscal year 2019-2020. The override is a continuation of the existing ten percent override that was previously approved by the voters in fiscal year 2006-2007. If the override is not approved for continuation, the existing ten percent override will phase out by reducing one-third for fiscal year 2013-2014 and another one-third in fiscal 2014-2015.”
Page voters will decide to exceed its revenue control by 15 percent and, “To adopt a General Maintenance and Operation Budget which exceeds the revenue control limit specified by statute by fifteen percent for fiscal years 2013-2014 through 2017-2018 and in fiscal years 2018-2019 and 2019-2020, the amount of the proposed increase will be ten percent and five percent, respectively, of the District’s revenue control limit in each of such years. The 2013-2014 budget override authority represents an extension and increase of the existing ten percent and five percent budget overrides. The District’s existing ten percent override is currently in its first year of the phase out period and has been reduced by one-third for fiscal year 2012-2013. If the override is not approved for continuation, the existing ten percent override will phase out by reducing by another one-third for fiscal year 2013-2014. The existing five percent will phase down by one-third in each fiscal year 2014-2015 and 2015-2016.”
