On April 4, Oran R-3 voters will be asked to approve a no-tax increase, $1,035,000 bond issue. Oran R-3 Superintendent Blane Keel Said that this Bond Issue is for the purpose of paying off a lease purchase three years in advance and making much-needed improvements in the district. According to the prior year’s collection rate the current bond levy is 85 cents, which generates about $177,000 annually. The levy would not change to pay off the new bonds which is why it is a no-tax increase issue, Keel explained. The new bonds would be paid off in 15 years.
