Seneca School Bond

SENECA, Mo. – Officials with the Seneca School District are hoping voters will pass a $5.5 million dollar school bond on November 3rd.

“We have good anticipation for it. We really believe in this and I think our community believes in it” said Superintendent Brandon Eggleston.

The bond would be used to improve the districts performing arts center to a black box style theater, build a track, and a new baseball softball field on school owned property off Highway U.

“This is something that’s going to address every student in the district and it’s not just athletic it’s for students who are athletes, or have those passions, those desires in drama, in speech and debate, in choir and band. So, we’re really able to address all our students and they need a good place to practice and perform” added Eggleston.

The proposed issue is a no tax increase bond however it would require the continuance of the current debt service levy of 85 cents for an additional 5 to 8 years.

“If we did not ever pass a no tax increase bond issue then between now and somewhere around 2030 is when that levy would go down” said Eggleston.

He says the improvements to the district’s facilities has been a long time coming-and they are excited for the possibilities the bond will bring if passed.

“3 years ago, there was a 4.5-million-dollar bond to address similar projects but that was a 14-cent tax increase so now were able to go no tax increase at 5.5. million. These are things that have been needed for a long time, our performing arts they are performing in a gym that has a stage on it but it’s not conducive to have a good performance. Track, they have about a 50 yard straight away they’re able to work on and they’re able to practice that way or use other area facilities to practice, so it’s things like that that have been needed for a long time”

Eggleston added that if the bond is passed construction could begin at the start of summer.
