Northshore taxpayers will save money
The Northshore School Board’s has decided to refund $13.6 million in outstanding bonds originally issued in 1998. The resulting actual dollar savings, which amount to $585,000, will not increase district revenues but will lower taxes. The board approved the action at its March 25 meeting. The district refinanced its bonds to take advantage of lower interest rates.
