With their eyes cast on the possibility of a new bond measure, Dixon Unified leaders will hold a Facilities Master Plan governing board workshop Saturday morning in Dixon.
Trustees will review details of the recently finished master plan and will discuss which of the rural school district’s eight campuses need the most help, upgrades and possible new construction, and when.
The workshop comes three months after the governing board approved a contract for polling services to gauge the public’s appetite for a possible new bond measure on the Nov. 8 general election.
A consultant advised trustees that, if the bond goes forward and is approved, that the district must not exceed its “bonding capacity” of $41 million, because the taxpayers are still funding Measure J, a $29 million bond passed by voters in 2002, a measure that has been refinanced, saving taxpayers an estimated $8 million.
