Coolidge voters pass two bonds
Two propositions that will enable the city of Coolidge and the Coolidge Unified School District to sell bonds for capital funding passed in the 2019 election by a narrow vote.
Propositions 434 and 435 were approved by voters within Coolidge districts. Proposition 434 asked voters to consider the sale of $5 million in bonds to fund the construction of an aquatic center that would replace the current city pool and road improvements along Northern Avenue.
Proposition 435 will enable CUSD to sell up to $21 million in bonds to fund facility improvements throughout the district, with the first initial sale of $5 million likely taking place in 2020.
For CUSD, the funding from bond sales will go to capital improvements such as replacing the aging curtains at the Coolidge Performing Arts Center and covering the costs for nearly $4 million in HVAC replacements the district anticipates in the coming years.
