Borough of Elmer Board of Education PUBLIC QUESTION YES OR NO

In addition to the proposed and approved tax levy for the 2015-2016 school year, the Elmer Board of Education will seek approval from the legal voters of the Borough of Elmer to raise an additional $645,897.00 as permitted under 18A:22-40 in order to address a permanent recurring funding shortfall. Approval of these taxes will result in a permanent increase in the District’s tax levy.

INTERPRETIVE STATEMENT

Due to actions taken by the State of New Jersey in the Spring of 2010 to withhold previously anticipated and budgeted State Aid payments and to drastically reduce State Aid allocations for the 2010-2011 school year, in combination with the imposition of the two percent “tax levy caps” and the rising costs associated with educating the students of the Borough of Elmer, the District has incurred a permanent recurring shortfall in its annual budget.  District fund balance has been exhausted in attempts to try to address this recurring shortfall.  Approval of this permanent tax levy adjustment under N.J.S.A. 18A:22-40 will permanently fill this recurring funding shortfall, and is necessary in order for the District to be able to provide the mandated thorough and efficient education to the student of the Borough of Elmer.

Pennsville Township Board of Education PUBLIC QUESTION YES OR NO

The Board of Education of the Township of Pennsville in the County of Salem, New Jersey is authorized: (a) to undertake various renovations and improvements, also known as the “Phase 1 Improvements,” to the Pennsville Memorial High School, Pennsville Middle School, Central Park Elementary School, Penn Beach Elementary School, and Valley Park Elementary School; (b) to undertake the necessary site work and acquire any associated equipment for the Phase I Improvements; (c) to appropriate $20,900,750 for the “Phase 1 Improvements” funded, in part, with debt service aid from the State of New Jersey at the rate of 41.5119% of the projects’ eligible costs; (d) to issue bonds of the School District in the amount of $20,900,750; and (e) to transfer funds between the school facilities projects approved at this election.

The final eligible costs of the “Phase 1 Improvements” approved by the New Jersey Commissioner of Education are $19,675,000. The “Phase 1 Improvements” include $1,225,750 of school facility construction elements in addition to the facilities efficiency standards developed by the Commissioner of Education or not otherwise eligible for State support pursuant to N.J.S.A. 18A:7G-5(g), for the Pennsville Memorial High School.

Proposal II—“Phase 2 Improvements” (Bond Proposal No. II will only go into effect if Bond Proposal No. I is also approved by the voters.)

The Board of Education of the Township of Pennsville in the County of Salem, New Jersey is authorized: (a) to undertake various additional renovations and improvements, also known as the “Phase 2 Improvements,” to the Pennsville Memorial High School, Pennsville Middle School, Central Park Elementary School, Penn Beach Elementary School, and Valley Park Elementary School; (b) to undertake any site work and acquire any associated equipment for the “Phase 2 Improvements”; (c) to appropriate $14,725,000 for such improvements funded, in part, with debt service aid from the State of New Jersey at the rate of 41.5119% of the projects’ eligible costs; (d) to issue bonds in the amount of $14,725,000; and (e) to transfer funds between the school facilities projects approved at this election.

Proposal II’s final eligible costs for the “Phase 2 Improvements” approved by the New Jersey Commissioner of Education are $14,162,500. The “Phase 2 Improvements” include $562,500 of school facility construction elements in addition to the facilities efficiency standards developed by the Commissioner of Education or not otherwise eligible for State support pursuant to N.J.S.A. 18A:7G-5(g), for the Pennsville Memorial High School.

INTERPRETATIVE STATEMENT

If both bond proposals are approved, the Board of Education will be authorized to undertake $35,625,750 of building additions, renovations, and site improvements as well as issue bonds of the School District in the amount of $35,625,750. The combined bond proposals have a total final eligible costs amount of $33,837,500 and total ineligible costs amount of $1,788,250. The State debt service aid percentage will equal 41.5119% of the annual debt service due with respect to the final eligible costs of the projects.
