|Chamber Board supports SVVSD bond issue|
The Longmont Area Chamber of Commerce board of directors voted Tuesday to support the St. Vrain Valley School District Bond, which will be on the local ballot during the Nov. 8 election.
“We look at these issues from the impact they have on business,” Kyle Snyder, Chamber Chair said. “This proposal involves investment and return on that investment. Public education plays a tremendous role in our community’s ability to attract and retain businesses, create well-paying jobs and adequately serve our community’s families and those moving to our area.”
Snyder said the district’s leadership has earned it a stellar reputation not just in the state, but nationwide.
“At an additional cost of just $1.82 per month per $100,000 of the value of a home - and the sunset nature of a bond issue - the Chamber board feels this is a reasonable cost for investment of our collective future, with minimal impact on businesses,” Snyder said.
