N-B Video: NWCS school board approves pursuing $14.9 million renovation

Taxpayers within the Northern Wells school district will now vote for or against $14.9 million in renovations during this May’s primary elections, after school board members Tuesday unanimously approved renovating high school classrooms, upgrading the ventilation system and more.

The project, if approved on the May ballot, will increase the tax rate by 17.72 cents for ever $100 in property value, estimated Jim Elizondo, a financial consultant for the district.

Under that rate, a homeowner with a $100,000 home will owe approximately $52 more a year — or $4.33 a month.
