School Debt Planning & Issuance

Bond Referendum Planning & Support

School districts have broad authority, with approval of their voters, to issue general obligation bonds to finance construction projects. Bonds are most commonly used for new schools and additions, facility renovations and improvements, and furniture and fixtures.

Referendum Planning & Support Services provided by Ehlers & Associates.

Effective Analyses, Objective Communications

Regardless of the project, Ehlers’ advisors collaborate with you, bond counsel and other professionals to determine the most appropriate financing tools for your district’s needs. Our modeling & benchmarking analyses begin well before decisions are made and ballots prepared.

We also help your district communicate the tax impact of the proposed school bond referendum. OurĀ  services include:

  • Set up and maintenance of a website providing information on how the proposed referendum will affect taxpayers, including an interactive feature that allows residential, commercial, and seasonal-recreational property owners to enter the estimated value of their property and immediately receive a projection of the annual and monthly tax impact of the bond referendum
  • Customized calculations for owners of agricultural properties
  • Prompt responses to all e-mail and phone inquiries received from taxpayers
