FAIRFIELD — Solano Community College District trustees gave the go-ahead Wednesday to place a $348 million bond measure on the November ballot.
The board voted 6-1 in favor of floating the measure, with Catherine Ritch casting the lone dissenting vote at Solano Community College.
If approved, college officials will use the money to modernize buildings from the past and provide specialized job training for the future.
The measure will go to voters in Solano County except Rio Vista, which is out of the college’s service area. Voters in Winters will also see it on the ballot. It will need 55 percent voter approval and will come with independent audits as well as a citizen’s oversight committee, according to staff reports. The measure would impose an additional $18.99 per $100,000 of assessed property value.
