BE IT ORDERED BY THE BOARD OF EDUCATION OF TilE COtJNTY OF GILMER: It appears to The Board of Education of the County of Gilmer (herein called the "Board") and the Board does accordingly hereby find: 1. The schools in Gilmer County School District are, with the exception af Gilmer County tilth School. over 45 years old. The Sand Fork, Tanner and Troy elementary schools are in vitdation of the Life Safety Code. as appears from a recent report by the State Fire Marshal. The auditoriam of one of the schools in described in one report as "a fire trap". Toilets are in basemenls without recommeeded exits. The existing high school should he remodeled and renovated and several rooms should he added. The Sand Fork. Tanner. Troy and Normantawn elementary schools must he renovated anti p.rtioos o! the Sand Fork and Normantown schools must be replaced so that they may continue to be used. In addition, the Glenville Elementary School needs added facilities in the form )f a gymnasium and related areas to render it a full service educational complex. The Beard has received reports and recommendations from the Gilmer County Citizens Committee for Better Schools. and meetiegs have been conducted in the past upon the question of the sc.hool needs. Acc,rdingly. the Board finds that it is urgently necessary that the Board acquire, renovate and improve certain of the existing school buildings in said School District as shown below, and in acvordance with the Compretmnsive Plan .f the School District which has been approved by the State Board of Education. The, funds derived from current levies atmlicable to the making of such improvements in anti additions to or supplementatlee ur renovation of certain existing school buildings, which this body is now authorized by law lo lay. after providing for the administration of the affairs of this Baard and meeting the current expenses thereof required by law, are insufficient to finance such improvements, additi,ms, supplementation and renovation anti, therefore. Bonds should be issuett t. provide funds theret.r. 2. Funds should be obtained for the purposes mentioned above and described below and it will be necessary to incur debt and issue Bonds for the enlargement, extension, supplementation, reconstruction, improvement and renovation of the existing school facilities hereinafter described. Investigation and studies by this Board show that at least the sum of Two Million Four Hundred Fifty-Nine Thousand Dollars ($2.459.00OJ must be spent for such purposes, in addition to the share of the Board in the State Better School Buildings Amendment Funds, which has already been provided, in the sum of $829.500. all to the end of providing better, safer school facilities in said School District as part of the effort required to meet the educational needs and to improve the opportunities of the students in said School District. 3. The valuation of the taxable property in Gilmer County School District. as shown by the last assessment thereof for state and county taxation purposes, is $49.198.300. and the valuation of each class of property within said school District is as follows: Class I $ 3.199,210 Class II 8.645.780 Class Ill 32,721.080 Class IV 4.632.230 Total: $ 49.198.300 4. There is not any indebtedness for school purposes in the former magisterial school districts in Gilmer County. nor is there any bonded indebtedness of Gilmer County School District. The unbonded indebtedness uf the School District is negligible and can be paid from current levy funds. Accordingly.
