Page '6 The Cloverdale Reveille May 2, 2019 www, c[overdalereveitle,coffl BOND: Continued from Page 1 to improve the quality of school facilities,'" Jefferson teacher Trish Healey said, reading over materials that were sent out while the district was campaigning for Measure H. "That was repeated over and over again in the information and shared with our community. That's why it passed. I feel like this was a sneaky way of getting in this money. It doesn't say we're going to pay for this property that was purchased in June. It kept going over and over and repeating 'for our current (students).' Our budget is supposed to be for our current students it's for now, not for the future." The job of the board-- whether they look out for current students, future students or both-- has been called into question during public comment multiple times over the past few board meetings. "We represent the current and future education of our schools. If we're just worrying about today, we're not going to go repair drainage lines that aren't going to have a problem until next January. Instead, as a board, we have to look at the future needs," Addison said in response. As such, when the district heard from the city-about land that's slated to be developed over the coming years, such as the Baumgardner Ranch subdivision in the south end of town, they began looking into purchasing property. "There's almost 400 houses planning to be built over the next four years in Cloverdale," Lands said. "Those are children that are going to be going to school in Cloverdale. We have to plan for the future. The list you have of major projects -- this project is 4% of that budget-- that is not a major project. We did not put every single thing on (the list) -- this is not a major project, this is not a major purchase in my opinion." One parent who helped knock on doors and present information about Measure H during election time expressed her personal frustration with not being told that spending the money to pay off a property lease was a bond use option. Because this expense wasn't listed as a talking point for door knockers, she felt blindsided. "I think the issue was just people not being aware that there was a purchase. I agree with the fact that we did buy low for hopes of a good future. I think it was a good buy I'm totally on board, I just think that there's a trust (loss). Because a lot of people were unaware," Danielle Streb said. "Personally if I had seen my money being put to work, I wouldn't have had an issue My suggestion is maybe we push this to the side for a year and get some of those projects in order and make the people see their money at work." "For me, Measure H had all these good things," Ed Bowen said. "But why didn,t you add something and be really clear and upfront, and say 'we've already purchased this property and we need this bond to pay for it.' But many of us didn't know about (the property)." Both Garrison and Peters expressed concern when it came time to vote. "I am concerned about public notice of things like this. I didn't realize that this was going to be quite as explosive as it is, but I think it is," Peters said. "Frankly, I was going to vote for it because I think it's fiscally responsible, but I also think that we didn't really be transparent in terms of when people got this information, what it was about and frankly I can't vote for it because of that. I think the timing is wrong." Both agreed that paying the $28,000 interest would be a wise decision "to gain back trust," rather than making the more fiscally responsible decision of paying the lease off with Measure H money on May 1. "I don't want the community getting upset that we're paying $28,000 for nothing or that it's coming out of the general fund," Garrison said. "I want to make sure that that's clear, where that money is coming from." "To me, it's giving away $28,000," Lands said. The next interest payment is due in November, and the board expressed an interest in seeing this brought back before then with a schedule of bond projects. SCULPTURE: Continued from Page 1 do to help out with the installation process -- like what parking spots to block off and what vehicles to use. When asked about what keeps her involved in the sculpture trail, Mann said that it was a natural thing for her to do. "It was natural for me, when we moved to Cloverdale to become involved with art. Sculptures in Cloverdale evolved during the redevelopment of the Cloverdale Boulevard 16 years ago as one reason to visit downtown Cloverdale," Mann said about her continued involvement in the trail. "From the beginning I became addicted to sculptures gracing the streets of Cloverdale," she continued. "I enjoy comments from the community and especially enjoy working with the sculptors each year. I look forward to seeing the sculptors as I have become friends with the repeats, and they enjoy exhibiting in Cloverdale." Those who haven't already can see the new sculptures by taking a walk down Cloverdale Boulevard-- they go from the Citrus Fair off ramp down to Third Street. LIGHTING: Student project makes positive impact Photos provided NEW TEOH -- Kids from Kismayop Primary School take a photo with their Solar Suitcase. Continued from Page 1 year," she said; "I don't think it's the wiring that's important to them, I think it's because they see what good it does. They go out into the world and they see the connection. They see what they're capable of doing. I think that's why they like it so much." This sentiment was echoed by Echols as she was discussing how this project compares to other projects she's done in class. "The solar suitcase assignment differs from other assignments in many ways," she said. "It most importantly shows us what we can do to impact the community. Mosts assignments get graded and then put in the trash, but this one will live on and help people." LEAVING NOTES -- Munsell's class wrote a note to the people receiving the Solar Suitcase they made. ~: ~. ,~.d~?~ Tedi Spain 292-3060 Thinking of buying or selling?
