Yreka Union High School Facilities Bond
Yreka, CA, October 20, 2014– At the June 27th, 2014 Meeting of the Board of Trustees, the Yreka Union High School District, Resolution 10-13/14 was adopted calling for a Facilities Bond to be placed before the voters on November 4th, 2014.

Plays, concerts (both high school and elementary school), community performances, and other major events could benefit from additional seating.
The eight million dollars in bonds authorized by Measure H, would cost property owners $25 per $100,000 of assessed value. In the Yreka Union High School District, the average home price is approximately $250,000. This would mean, if passed, the average home owner would pay $62.50 per year or $5.21 per month.
Passage of MEASURE H would allow the Board of Trustees to implement a Facilities Improvement Plan consisting of:
