Citizen’s Oversight Committee Members Needed

 

The recent election resulted in the passage of Measure X.  Measure X was proposed to our non-Mello Roos homeowners to provide the District with approximately four million dollars over the next several years.  This money, resulting from the sale of bonds, will provide much needed funding to rehabilitate and modernize our aging schools. 

 

There are approximately two thousand homes in our school district.  Almost 1,300 are “Mello-Roos” homes.  These homeowners pay an annual tax averaging $500.00 a year to pay for bonds that were sold to build Meadow and Corona Creek Schools.  The Mello-Roos tax doesn’t expire until 2026.

 

Measure X was passed by a majority of non-Mello-Roos homeowners and will result in an annual tax of $30 per $100,000 of assessed valuation to each homeowner.  Since the state does not provide significant funds to schools for repairs and modernization, and since a majority of our homeowners already pay a large tax each year, the remaining option was to ask our non-Mello-Roos homeowners to pass Measure X. 

 

These much needed funds will be used to replace roofs, paint schools, repair the track and field at Meadow School, modernization and/or add restrooms at Meadow, repair deteriorating infrastructure and possible replace aging portables, among other identified projects.

 

We now need to form a Citizen’s Oversight Committee to provide fiscal oversight when the Measure X bonds are sold starting as early as February.  The Committee must have the following members:

 

  • A member of a senior citizens’ organization 
  • A parent or guardian of a child enrolled in one of our schools
  • A parent who is also a member and involved in PTA
  • An active member of a bonafide taxpayers  
  • A person active in a business organization representing the business community located within the school district
  • Two members from the community at large

If you or someone you know fits one of these categories and would like to serve, please stop by Meadow or Corona Creek School to pick up an application.  The deadline for applications is February 10.  The Waugh School District Board of Trustees will then select and appoint members to the Committee.

 

For more information contact Dr. Scott Mahoney at (707) 953-3434 or send an email to smahoney@waughsd.org

Dr. Mahoney was superintendent in our district for 19 years and has agreed to help us move forward with this initiative.

 

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, our employees, and most of all, on behalf of our students, THANK YOU for your tremendous, ongoing support of our amazing school district.

 

With appreciation,

Being Good Neighbors

unnamed-1.jpg

Our schools are located in neighborhoods. We ask for everyone's support in response to the requests of our neighbors and of the Petaluma Police Department to be extremely careful to not block driveways, double-park and encroach on the red zones during drop-off and pick-up each day.

 

The people who live in the homes on our nearby streets need to be able to get in and out of their driveways with their access unimpeded, especially in case of an emergency. We know that attention to this issue will continue to be a need, as we gear up for the start of school again in August, which will mean that more people are driving to the school in both the morning and afternoon.

 

Thank you, in advance, for your help in addressing this concern.
