Funds boost targets showgrounds revamp
Harrison said the funds were put in place to address the issue of high rental cost솔레어 카지노s in the area.
Harrison, who is chairman of the board of education for the city of Harrison’s Northside district, said the funds come in an attempt to increase the district’s educational budget by at least $200,000. He said the district expects the project would add a third staff member.
If the school district is unable to raise funds through the bond issue, its next option is for the city to take over some or all of the funds it receives to he포커lp fund the project.
«Once the money that was originally going to go into the district went out, there was a significant reduction in our expenditures on education,» Harrison said.

The Harrison district, which includes the school at 1 W. Main St. and four other buildings as well as a vacant office building, is located in a small city about three-quarters of a mile west of West Oakland.
That city is one of the poorest in Oakland, with a population of more than 1.7 million.
Rent rates in Harrison’s school district are between $750 per month and $800. The district pays $3,100 per year for all residential rents in the district.
The bond issue is expected to go before voters next year and a voter turnout rate of 80 percent would be needed to approve it.
The bonds would have to generate about $35 million annually to pay for the school construction, said Harrison.
The district also hopes that local businesses and non-profit groups would foot the bill for the bond in any redevelopment costs related to the project.
Councilman Richard Conley, a board member of the East Bay Community Coalition, said the proposal by the school district could have a positive impact on the district’s mission of educating children, including the approximately 500 students in Harrison’s Northside.
But Harrison said that doesn’t mean a portion of the bond could not raise enough for that purpose.
«The people who buy the bonds are not people who have a political or philanthropic agenda for the schoo
