Additional Palmer Wing Tours Scheduled at Knox Elementary

Voters in the Knox Community School District will have several more chances to take a firsthand look at the repairs they are being asked to fund through a nominal property tax hike. The Whatever it Takes Committee has scheduled five more informational meetings at Knox Elementary School. Each will start with a brief PowerPoint presentation, followed by a question-and-answer session and tours of the building’s original Palmer wing. All meetings will start in the cafeteria/multipurpose room at the east end of the elementary school building.

Sessions are scheduled Thursday, April 11 from 5 until 6 p.m., Wednesday, April 17 from 6 until 7 p.m., Saturday, April 20 from noon until 1 p.m. and 5 until 6 p.m. and Tuesday, April 23 from 4 until 5 p.m.

Absentee voting is under way for the May 7 special election. Voters are being asked to approve a property tax increase to fund the repairs, which will not exceed $16 million and will increase the property tax rate for debt service by a maximum of 28-cents per $100 of assessed valuation.
