- Why are you proposing a new tax now? What happens if it fails?
There has not been a tax passed in Bonding District 31 for 17 years. The buildings are maintained by the CPSB operating budget but they are structurally aging and need major renovations to modernize them and make them last many more years. The school facilities in the area need upgrades to keep up with the times. If the bond issues fail CPSB will continue to maintain the existing buildings, but aging will only get worse, and roofs which are already deteriorating, will become a major problem without funding.
