6. UNFINISHED BUSINESS
6.A. Discussion about Capital Funding from Washington County
Discussion:  Mr. Tim Belisle reminded the board that the Washington County Commissioners Workshop Meeting is scheduled on October 1. This meeting will discuss the proposed final documents to move forward to build a new school. The current plan is for Jonesborough to fund the new school through bonds and lease the thirty million dollar property to own at the end of the lease versus Washington County Commissioners bonding the funds.  This is a significant concern for Johnson City regarding revenue. Johnson City residents are responsible for two-thirds of property taxes paid to Washington County. Mr. Jonathon Kinnick also noted that 48% of Washington County students are educated in Johnson City. Mr. Robert Williams agreed and commented that the board is also in full support of Washington County building a new school. Both Washington County and Johnson City have financial needs. Mr.Belisle thanked Mr. Keith Ervin, Washington County School Board Chair for attending the Johnson City School's Board Meeting. Mr. Ervin commented that he supports all students in both Johnson City and Washington County.  Mr. Belisle agreed and commented that both systems can work together to find a solution. Unfortunately, a few individuals have turned the situation into a Johnson City versus Jonesborough issue when in fact it's a Johnson City and Jonesborough versus Washington County Commission matter.  The County Commission has prolonged the need to fund a new school and at the same time has avoided returning to the citizens of Johnson City capital monies that have funded schools in Washington County. Therefore, both systems have been impacted. Mr. Kinnick commented that the tax structure is complicated and many residents do not fully understand the ramifications. Johnson City Schools are only asking for their fair share. Dr. Steve Barnett noted that in the last two years the elementary school enrollment has increased from approximately 525 to 625 per grade-level cohort, system-wide. Both systems have needs. Johnson City Schools have a capacity issue and a security issue at Towne Acres. Mr. Belisle encouraged all Board Members to attend the workshop. A special called meeting may be needed before the next commissioners meeting.
