Voters approved Measure S, a general obligation bond measure, this summer. Now Benicia Unified School District is ready to start financing various long-standing needs around the district using the first chunk of the new funding.
BUSD trustees meet Thursday to consider Resolution 14-15-06, which authorizes the issue and sale of $20 million in bonds.
Measure S, approved by Benicia voters June 3, authorized a total of $49.6 million in bonds for modernizing classrooms, restrooms and school facilities; repairing or replacing roofs; and increasing student access to computers and modern technology.
