The Lamoni Community School District relies on one-cent statewide sales tax funds to support its facilities and provide technology resources to students on a daily basis.

We can use these funds for:

  • Improving school safety and security

  • Building, remodeling, repairing, expanding, improving, and furnishing buildings

  • Assisting with payment of principal and interest of retirement of general obligation bonds issued for school infrastructure purposes, energy improvement loans, loan agreements, and tax revenue bonds 

  • Acquiring buildings, equipment, technology, and repair transportation equipment for student use

  • Assisting with property tax relief 

  • Assisting with other authorized expenditures and purposes

The financial resources provided by the one-cent sales tax are essential in sustaining our facilities and delivering a top-tier educational experience to our students.

A Revenue Purpose Statement allows a community to decide how its local schools use one-cent sales tax funds.

Secure an Advanced Vision for Education (SAVE)—also known as the statewide one-cent sales tax for education—allows Iowa school districts to ask voters to approve an RPS to continue investing sales tax funds in school infrastructure projects. Our current RPS will expire in 2031

On Tuesday, November 7, 2023, Lamoni residents will vote on extending the RPS.

An approved statement would extend the district's RPS to 2050, which is as long as allowable by current legislation. The extension would take immediate effect upon voter approval.

Approving the statement would have no impact on local property taxes, nor would it affect the sales tax. It would specify where and how the School Board may use SAVE funds.

This is an important measure for our schools, as it allows the district to spend state SAVE funds on projects that have been and will continue to be critical for our school infrastructure.
