OFFICIAL BALLOT PROPOSITION FOR THE
WASATCH COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT, UTAH
SPECIAL BOND ELECTION

NOVEMBER 5, 2019

/s/ 	Keith Johansen	
Business Administrator
	
PROPOSITION
Shall the Board of Education (the 'Board') of Wasatch County School District, Utah (the 'District'), be authorized to issue General Obligation Bonds (the 'Bonds') in a principal amount not to exceed One Hundred Fifty Million Dollars ($150,000,000) for the purpose of paying all or a portion of the costs to acquire land and construct school facilities; including acquiring, constructing and furnishing a new high school and replacing the existing Midway Elementary School facilities and related improvements and the authorization and issuance of the Bonds due and payable with a term not to exceed twenty-one (21) years from the date of issuance of the Bonds?  
Property Tax Cost of Bonds: If the Bonds are issued as planned, without regard to the existing taxes currently paid for existing bonds that will reduce over time, a property tax sufficient to pay debt service on the Bonds will be required over a period of twenty-one (21) years in the estimated amount of $262 per year on a $562,000 (or $47 per year for every $100,000 of taxable value) primary residence and in the estimated amount of $476 (or $85 per year for every $100,000 of taxable value) per year on a business or secondary residence having the same value.  

The District has other outstanding bonds for which a tax decrease would occur upon the retirement of such bonds, which may not occur if the Bonds are issued. However, these outstanding bonds reduce over time such that the property tax due to the issuance of the Bonds is expected to increase from current annual levels of approximately $214 per year on a $562,000 (or $38 per year for every $100,000 of taxable value) primary residence and in the estimated amount of $389 per year (or $69 per year for every $100,000 of taxable value) on a business or secondary residence of the same value.

The foregoing information is only an estimate and is not a limit on the amount of taxes that the District may be required to levy to pay debt service on the Bonds. The District is obligated to levy taxes to the extent provided by law in order to pay the Bonds. The amounts are based on various assumptions and estimates, including estimated debt service on the Bonds and taxable values of property in the District.

FOR THE ISSUANCE OF BONDS (YES)	 

AGAINST THE ISSUANCE OF BONDS (NO)

Locations of early voting places and election day voting centers may be found by consulting the websites indicated above or by calling (435) 657-3190.
