Renewal Capital Projects Levy


Chimacum School Matters Newsletter

Focus on the Capital Levy




March 26, 2018


Dear Chimacum Community Member:

At the March 14, 2018 meeting the Board of Directors authorized a Replacement Levy to provide funding for capital projects, technology, and safety improvements.  A full text of the measure is seen here: Resolution 2018-1

Some highlights of the levy are as follows:

1.      The levy replaces the 2012 capital and technology levy.

2.      The levy collects one million, three hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars ($1,325,000)

3.      The cost per thousand dollars of assessed value is estimated at .614 to .677 over the course of the levy.

4.      The levy is for six years, with a total collection of $7,950,000.00.

5.      This levy is not a bond.

6.      We will use these dollars to continue making facility improvements, focusing on safety, and maintaining the best spaces the district owns.

A full analysis of all district properties was completed last year. See the MENG Summary Report or MENG Powerpoint for details.

This will be a mail-in ballot only election. 

Ballots are due August 7, 2018. 

A levy requires 50% plus 1 for passage. 

I will be out in the community making presentations about this levy before the election.

Please don’t hesitate to call or email me with questions: (360) 302-5896; rick_thompson@csd49.org. 

You may also contact Assistant Superintendent Art Clarke at (360) 302-5895 or art_clarke@csd49.org.


Thank you,

Rick Thompson
