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; system-wide
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.
