You are hereby notified that the Board of Education of Iron County School District has adopted a resolution calling for a bond election to issue bonds in the amount not to exceed $92,000,000.

Pursuant to Section 20A-7-402 of the Utah Code, any eligible voter within the District has the right to submit an argument for or against the issuance of said bonds.

The ballot title or the purpose for which the bonds are being issued is:

To raise money to purchase school sites, to build or purchase one or more schoolhouses, to supply and equip said schoolhouses and to improve existing school property. This initiative seeks to increase the current property tax rate by 7.39% resulting in a 7.39% increase in the current tax rate.

If you desire to submit an argument for or against the bond proposition, you must submit a request to the Iron County Clerk, acting as the election officer, no later than September 2, 2018. Such request must be hand-delivered to the County Courthouse, 68 South 100 East, Parowan, Utah (84761) or mailed sufficiently in advance to insure delivery to the County Clerk by said date. If more than one request is submitted to the County Clerk, the election officer shall determine the person to submit the argument subject to the following criteria: members of the local legislative body shall have priority over other individuals submitting a request. The District, as the sponsor of the bond proposition, shall be submitting an argument in favor of the bond proposition.

If you are selected to submit an argument for or against the bond proposition, your argument must be submitted to the County Clerk no later than September 7, 2018. The argument for or against cannot exceed 500 words, cannot list more than 5 sponsors and must include your eligible voter’s name, residential address, postal address, email address (if available), and a contact telephone number. The election officer shall refuse to accept and publish an argument for or against that is submitted or received after September 7, 2018.

Within one business day after both arguments are received, both parties will be provided with the other argument as to which you shall have the right to file a rebuttal argument. The rebuttal argument must be submitted to the District no later than September 22, 2018 and the argument cannot exceed 250 words. The election officer shall refuse to accept and publish any rebuttal argument that is submitted or received after September 22, 2018.

The election officer and the eligible voter who submits an argument or rebuttal argument may modify their submissions for correct facts, grammatical, spelling errors, or word requirements. The election officer shall refuse to accept and publish arguments or rebuttal if the eligible voter fails to negotiate in good faith regarding the prior modifications.
