Bond Facts

Who: CPS Board of Education passed a bond resolution

What: High School Bond Election

When: May 13, 2014

Why: Enrollment solution (Solving capacity issues in all schools Pre-K-12)

Cost: $49,915,000

According to the Platte County Assessor, the average home in Columbus costs $111,754. The increase would be
$53.08 Per year
$4.42 Per month
14.5 Cents a day

The proposed project would have cause a 10 cent increase in the total tax levy. CPS was able to reduce the increase to 4.75 cents.

The total tax levy increase will be reduced by:

Strategy Reduction  Total cost
None None 10 Cents
Eliminate costs associated with early retirement 2.75 Cents 7.25 Cents
Reduce general fund spending .75 Cents 6.5 Cents
Reduce the bond fund cash reserve 1 Cent 5.5 Cents
Reduce the general fund cash reserve .75 Cents 4.75 Cents


What does this mean to you? Here is how to calculate the actual cost of a new high school based on the value of your property.

1. Obtain the assessed valuation of your property from your tax statement or from the County Assessor.

2. Multiply that figure by .000475

3. The result is your annual cost. To find out your monthly cost divide by 12.
