Salem voters consider casino, school renovations

Some $17M in school renovations also on ballot tomorrow

(Continued)

There is also a citizens petition article requesting $679,000 for a multipurpose room at Soule. The article would be voided if the $16.2 million bond fails.

If the warrant articles are approved, the school portion of the tax rate would increase 3 percent — or 38 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation. It is now $12.47 per $1,000. The multipurpose room accounts for nearly half of that increase.

This is the first year Salem won’t have a second deliberative session after adopting ballot voting under the Senate Bill 2 form of government.
