School district’s $35 million bond issue approved

The St. Charles Parish Public Schools School Board was authorized by 8.3% of registered parish voters in today’s special election to issue new bonds not to exceed $35 million for capital improvement projects.

The new bonds will be serviced by renewing 1.2 mills – which expired in December 2021 – of the total 5.01 debt service millage.

Of the 36,163 registered voters in the parish, only 3,010 participated in this election. Voting for the passage of the bond issue were 1,711 voters, while 1,299 voters did not support the measure.
