PPEL VoteSeptember 9, 2014 • The current voter-approved PPEL expires on June 30, 2015. PPEL funds support the maintenance and upkeep of the District’s 425 acres of grounds and 2.7 million square feet of building space and have been focused on: • Urgently-needed maintenance, with planned equipment purchases and facility repairs. • Building envelope maintenance and repair (roofing and masonry). • Campus parking lots and asphalt for playgrounds.
PPEL VoteSeptember 9, 2014 • The District is asking for voter approval of a 10-year PPEL at the rate of $1.34 per $1,000 of assessed valuation. For a $100,000 assessed value residential property owner, increasing the PPEL level from the current $.67 to $1.34 would result in an additional $37.43 per year or about $3 per month. • Vote at Kennedy (Black Box) or any other high school in CRCSD tomorrow 7 AM to 8 PM.
