Fairfield-Suisun Unified leaders, when they meet tonight, are expected to approve an estimated $250 million bond measure for the June ballot, adopt a facilities master plan, and “sunshine” several employee contracts.
Superintendent Kris Corey said the proposed bond measure, for nearly a year the subject of discussions and communitywide meetings, would ask property owners to pay no more than $60 per $100,000 of assessed valuation. By law, the money could only be spent on projects identified on the bond project list, among other things, for new science classrooms, upgrades to existing classrooms, replacement of aging portable classrooms, enhancement of campus security, and improving existing building systems.
The seven-member governing board is likely to approve the bond, and the resolution for it must be filed with the county by March 11 in order for it to appear on the June 7 ballot.
