How the money can be used

Statute dictates that revenue from the County Schools Facility Sales Tax can only be used for certain things.  Below is a description:

  • Safety and security improvements
  • Paying off building bonds
  • Energy efficiency
  • Durable Equipment
  • Additions and Renovations
  • Architectural planning/engineering
  • New school facilities
  • Land acquisition

Salaries are NOT payable with this revenue.

Also, applying this revenue to any of the above categories can potentially free up other money in the budget which can then be used for things that are not on this list.
