School board special election Tuesday ‘not an additional tax’
The Newton Community School District Board of Education is holding a special election from noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday at only one local polling site — the Jasper County Community Center, located at 2401 First Ave. E. in Newton.
The purpose of the election is to renew the district’s Revenue Purpose Statement, which expires January 2013, to authorize expenditures from the state Secure an Advanced Vision for Education fund. If adopted, it would extend to 2029 when the state penny expires, according to Director of Business Services Gayle Isaac during the board’s Oct. 8 regular meeting.
“This is not an additional tax. This is just approving how we use the money, the state penny,” he said during the October meeting.
