2008 General Obligation Bond Referendum

2008 General Obligation Bond Referendum

At its November meeting, the Gwinnett County Board of Education approved a resolution calling for voters to consider a General Obligation Bond referendum question on the February 5, 2008, ballot during the Georgia Presidential Preference Primary. If approved, Gwinnett voters will authorize the School Board to sell up to $750 million in tax-exempt, General Obligation Bonds. The issuance of the bonds will not require a tax increase as the bonds will be paid off using property taxes collected under the current debt-service millage rate.
