NOTICE OF SALES
AND USE TAX FOR
EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES
ELECTION ON MAY 22, 2018
Pursuant to a resolution adopted by the
Board of Education of Jenkins County
(the “Board of Education”), the managing and controlling body of the Jenkins
County School District (the “School
District”), on January 22, 2018, and
a call of election issued by the Judge
of Probate Court of Jenkins County,
as Election Superintendent, notice is
hereby given as follows:
1.On May 22, 2018, an election will be
held in Jenkins County to submit to the
qualified voters of Jenkins County the
following question:
1% EDUCATIONAL SALES TAX
( ) YES Shall a one percent sales
and use tax for educational purposes
be imposed in the Jenkins County
School District for a period of time not to
exceed 20 consecutive calendar quarters and for the raising of not more than
$4,000,000 for the purposes of adding
to, renovating, improving, demolishing,
furnishing and equipping existing school
district buildings and facilities; systemwide technology improvements; and
acquiring new school equipment, including safety and security equipment?
( ) NO If imposition of the tax is
approved by the voters, such vote shall
also constitute approval of the issuance
of general obligation debt of the Jenkins
County School District in the principal
amount of $3,000,000 for the above
capital outlay purposes and for the
payment of capitalized interest.
2.All qualified voters desiring to vote in
favor of imposing the one percent sales
and use tax for educational purposes
(the “Educational Sales Tax”) shall vote
“Yes” and all qualified voters opposed to
levying the Educational Sales Tax shall
vote “No.” If more than one half of the
votes cast are in favor of imposing the
Educational Sales Tax then such tax
shall be imposed beginning upon the
termination of the Educational Sales Tax
presently in effect and shall cease to be
imposed on the earlier of (a) 20 calendar
quarters after the tax is imposed or (b)
as of the end of the calendar quarter
during which the Commissioner of
the Georgia Department of Revenue
determines that the Educational Sales
Tax will have raised revenues sufficient
to provide to the net proceeds equal to
or greater than the amount specified as
the maximum amount of net proceeds to
be raised by the Educational Sales Tax.
3.The maximum cost of the capital
outlay projects to be funded with Educational Sales Tax proceeds, including
interest, and cost of issuance on the
general obligation debt to be incurred,
shall be $4,000,000. To the extent available, the School District may combine
available funds from the State of Georgia with proceeds of the Educational
Sales Tax and the general obligation
debt, and any other available funds, to
pay the costs of the above described
capital outlay projects. Plans and
specifications for these projects have
not been completed and bids or proposals have not been received. Depending
upon acquisition and construction costs
and available funds, the School District
may establish or reestablish priorities
and choose which capital outlay projects to undertake or not undertake,
or to delay until additional funding is
available, to the extent that proceeds
of the Educational Sales Tax and the
general obligation debt, together with
other available funds actually received
by the School District, are insufficient
to complete any of the capital outlay
projects.
4.If such Educational Sales Tax is to
be imposed, the Board of Education
may issue general obligation debt on
behalf of the School District, in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed
$3,000,000. The proceeds from such
general obligation debt, if issued, shall
be used to fund all or a portion of the
capital outlay projects. The maximum
rate or rates of interest on such debt
shall not exceed 6.0% per annum. The
maximum amount of principal to be paid
in each year during the life of the debt
shall be as follows:
Year Principal Amount Maturing
Year 1 $570,000
Year 2 585,000
Year 3 600,000
Year 4 615,000
Year 5 630,000

The Board of Education may issue aggregate general obligation debt which
is less than $3,000,000 and reduce the
principal amounts maturing in each year
which are shown above.
7.Reference is hereby made to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated § 36-
82-1(d) which provides in part that any
brochures, listings, or other advertisements issued by the Board of Education
or by any other person, firm, corporation
or association with the knowledge and
consent of the Board of Education shall
be deemed to be a statement of intention
of the Board of Education concerning the
use of bond funds.
8.The last day to register to vote in the
election is Tuesday, April 24, 2018, or
as otherwise provided by law. Anyone
desiring to register may do so by applying in person at the voter registration
office located at the Jenkins County
Courthouse, Millen, Georgia, or by any
other method authorized by the Georgia
Election Code.
9. The election will be held on Tuesday,
May 22, 2018. The polls will be open
from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.
This January 24, 2018.
