A special bond election has been requested by Uinta County School District 4, according to information the Pioneer received from Lana Wilcox, Uinta County Clerk.
The date of the special election will be Nov. 8. Absentee ballots will be available Sept. 30.
The school board will hold a public hearing on Sept. 19, at 6 p.m. in the Mountain View High School auditorium. At this time, the board will provide an explanation of the need to obtain district funding for enhancements of the new K-8 building. These enhancements include things like additional classrooms to maintain the district’s commitment to low student to teacher ratios, increased square footage of classrooms, and increased instructional space for fine arts, physical education and vocational education.
During the special election, voters will be asked to approve the issue of general obligation bonds, not to exceed $1,990,000, to provide these enhancements for the new K-8 school. Bonds are to mature within 17 years and will bear a maximum rate of interest of 6 percent per annum.
Voter registration will close on Oct. 26, Wilcox said. “However, residents will be able to register and vote at the polls on Election Day. Please visit our web site at www.uintacounty.com for voter registration requirements,” Wilcox said.
Polling places will be at the Fort Bridger Elementary, Mountain View Town Hall and Mountain View school administrative building. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Nov. 8. All qualified electors living within UCSD4 boundaries are eligible to vote in this election.
There will be additional public notices, sample ballots, etc. to be published in the near future as statutorily required, Wilcox said.
