Jordan Smith of Stephen L. Smith Corporation presented a Capital Improvement Plan and potential bond proposal options to the board. He provided an analysis of historical growth in valuation, at an average of 10.57% over the past five years and 15.44% last year. He also provided projections for growth at a conservative 5% annually. 

Three options for possible bond issue amounts were presented to the board, including information on the funds available for projects and the repayment plan options. The option recommended to the board by Mr. Smith is an 11-year bond with an election amount of $114,480,000. This amount would result in $71,232,000 available for bond projects. This option also results in no tax increase, currently at 36.50 mils for property owners. A final proposal will be presented to the board for a vote in January.
